Duo-Colored Flowers at Garden at the Bay

A pink and purple flower

I love looking at unusual looking flowers.    Flowers that have more then one color are certainly extremely appealing to me. They different colors on a single bloom gives the flower more “depth”.

Different shades of the same color also helps to “magnify” a flower. The darker purple at the tips of the petal really help to accentuate it.

This white bloom had “highlighted” pink inner petals which was really outstanding. It made one focus on the center of the flower when you look at the flower.

An Orchid

This flower unlike the previous two feature has very contrasting color petals. The dark purple petals make one focus on the center of the flower. I guess that it is also one of the ways that it attracts bees to aid in the pollination of the flower.

Yellow Purple Orchid

Another orchid with contrasting colors for it’s petal.  Don’t you find the purple portion really eye catching?

Do you like two colored flowers too?

Random Nature Shots at Gardens at the Bay

During the school holidays we finally had the chance to visit Garden at the Bay at  Marina South. It has been open for more then a year  but we waited until now to visit as we didn’t want to jostle with the opening crowds.  During our visit there we didn’t go into the domes but toured the outdoor areas instead. The kids are not really into fauna and appreciating nature so we decided against entering the domes and paying the hefty entrance fees for it. Maybe one of these days I will visit the place on a photo walk with my photo buddies or with R instead.

Not all the plant were labelled in the garden so I couldn’t really identify  which palm this fruits were from.

I saw many ixora plants at the garden.  Love their pinkish red flowers.

I saw this lovely white bloom. I like the yellow centre of the bloom as it accentuates the whole flower and gives it more depth.
