#126 Singapore orchids

126/365 Singapore orchids, originally uploaded by rosipaw.

An early morning walk in the Singapore Botanical Garden is really wonderful. It’s a huge area, with lakes, ponds, pathways, benches, restaurants and cafés – and, most of all, an amazing variety of plants and trees.

The orchid garden was my favourite. Singapore is one of the biggest exporters of orchids, and the number of different hybrids in all the colours of the rainbow is staggering. Orchid is also the national flower of the country.

It was a surprise to me to see the drop of water on the picture – I hadn’t realized it when taking the shot.
