The month of September welcomes autumn as Gardens by the Bay brings a new floral display – Autumn Harvest to you! Be enchanted by Cinderella’s pumpkin carriage in the Flower Dome, along with a lush farm plot overflowing with abundant produce and blooms like anemones, gaillardias, phloxes and chrysanthemums.
From fairy tales to folklore, look out for a pumpkin-shaped lantern and sprawling outdoor lantern sets that bring to life scenes of bountiful harvests and abundance. Don’t miss “Waters of Prosperity”, the largest lantern display created by the Gardens to date. Spanning an area of 1,250 square metres over water, this lantern set portrays a fishing village teeming with 70 carp-shaped lanterns.
AUTUMN HARVEST FLORAL DISPLAY (丰收之秋)
A lavish flower field saturated in rich hues of orange, red, gold and green welcomes visitors this September, as autumn comes to Flower Dome in the “Autumn Harvest” floral display. Savour how the traditional season of crop gathering is interpreted in creative ways – a bounteous land is inhabited by a fruit and vegetable giant; a lush farm plot overflows with abundant produce and blooms like anemones, gaillardias, phloxes and chrysanthemums; and Cinderella’s pumpkin carriage sits pretty amidst pumpkin trees.
Pumpkins take on yet another twist in the mini Halloween exhibit, where myriad carved and decorated versions celebrate the most anticipated festival of fall. There are more than 10 varieties of special pumpkins to see, such as the pristine white “Polar Bear”, the pretty striped “Pump-Ke-Mon” and the bizarre-looking “Red Warty Thing”.
This year, the lanterns dotting the outdoor gardens as part of the annual Mid-Autumn Festival continue inside Flower Dome. Look out for a plethora of fruit and vegetable-shaped lanterns, and drop by the Mediterranean Garden for a photo opportunity with a giant pumpkin lantern.
