Spring in Bloom

Finally, the first signs of spring are appearing, and after the long winter, I am just as excited as the flowers to feel the sun on my face or to push my fingers through the rich soil. Here in Northern Virginia the weather is still on the cold side of the season so, its enjoyable to head to the District of Columbia in order to experience the Cherry Blossoms along the Tidal Basin, magnolias flowering around the Mall or seeing exotic flowers at the National Arboretum.  One of my dearest friends Kiwi enjoying the day in Washington surrounded by beautiful blooms, which affirms the arrival of spring. Witnessing this spectacular transformation of color and warmth throughout the city is the best way to spend a Saturday.

Gardens by the Bay

During the spring season there is nothing more enjoyable than recalling travels where you have an opportunity of seeing cultural sites. But, on todays agenda I am reviewing the gardens of Singapore, looking at photographs of organized spaces that have the most exotic plants, while re-reading notes made of the local flowers that may be possibly grown at Heath. On a recent excursion our team was in central Singapore adjacent to the Marina Reservoir where there is a nature park that spans 250 acres, and consists of three waterfront gardens. The government has transformed the city by creating Gardens by the Bay, which consist of conservatories, groves of trees with themed gardens.

And, one themed garden is from one of my favorite childhood book’s Alice in Wonderland, where the peculiar, anthropomorphic creatures such as the Cheshire Cat and the White Rabbit still exist.

Plan stylishly,
