Singapore is a city full of amazing buildings and public spaces. The shopping areas are incredible – they go on and on and on. But there is also a beautiful botanical garden, and in it there is a fabulous orchid garden. We spent several hours walking about the gardens and learning about orchids (and the ginger plant family. Did you know that bananas, ginger and bird of paradise plants are all from the same family?) Anyhoo – orchids. There are sure a lot of them and they’re coming up with new ones all the time.
