About Me

My photo
My name is Kaye and I am 58 years old. Unbelievably to me, at my age, I have now just embarked upon my third career - as a History Education Consultant! I love to cross stitch and quilt, especially with my kittens, Furio and Milo "helping" me. I also love to read, I have a passion for history and I have been cooking since I was about 12 - move over Junior Masterchef! So, this blog, which started out as a cross stitch blog sometimes morphs into a reading journal or a history lesson (sorry, I used to be a secondary teacher before I became a publisher and now a consultant) or a post about my cooking mojo. Whatever it is, this blog is alway about me, my family and my life here in Eaglemont, Victoria. I have been happily married for over 30 years to the most wonderful man and we are blessed with three beautiful grown up children.

Cloud Forest and Super Tree Grove - Holiday Post #6 - Singapore #6


Well, we are still visiting Singapore via my blog!  There are two domes in the Gardens by the Bay - the  Flower Dome which I posted about here and the Cloud Forest.  There is also the Super Tree Grove but I only have photos of that from a distance as I just ran out of time (shopping on Orchard Road was calling!)

The Cloud Forest was quite different to the Flower Dome.  When you enter the first thing you see is a giant waterfall.




This dome, too, is filled with the most gorgeous flowers and other plants and some quirky things, too, like the moss-covered car.


































Here is some pics  of the Super Tree Grove from a distance.  They are just enormous.  The tallest one, in the centre, apparently has a revolving restaurant - I am sure it would be a marvellous experience - maybe on our next trip to Singapore - lol!





I hope that you have enjoyed the Cloud Forest and the Super Trees.

hugs,
