Travel theme: Flowers

28 Jul

If not for weekly challenges, I might have disappeared from WordPress.  Over the past few months, most of my blog posts are for weekly challenges.  Initially I only posted for The Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge, then I joined Jake’s Sunday Post, and this is one of my posts for Ailsa’s Travel Theme: Flowers. You can check out Ailsa’s amazing flowers, and that of other bloggers.

My entry this week is pictures from Singapore’s Changi International Airport, where I happened to spend a few hours for a connecting flight.  I visited the beautiful Orchid Garden and spent a couple of hours there.  It is really beautiful with rare orchids and colorful fish in the Koi Pond.

    That could provide such a relaxing interlude in a hectic day of travel – it’s beautiful.

      Thanks for visiting Lynne – yes, it was a welcome break after a 10-hour flight, before boarding another plane for a 4-hour flight!

    Beautiful pics, and what a lovely idea to have a pond and these lovely flowers at the airport. It’s certainly pretty and a nice way to pass time whilst waiting for flights.
    Thanks for dropping by my blog, much appreciated:-)

    Wow, Shaanthz, I can’t believe this is at an airport. What a marvellous way to spend a few hours in between flights. Fabulous photos.

    How lovely to be able to transit through an airport like that! I have never been to Singapore, not even on transit!!

      Madhu, you haven’t been to Singapore – unbelievable. With all the traffic from India to Singapore, how come you missed that one when you travel all over the world? Well, maybe you and R will just have to go and transit through the airport 🙂
