50 years of Greening event @ SBG Part II


 Decided to visit the Gardens before attending another talk in the afternoon, turned out to be a great choice since i get to see so many different plant species flowering and fruiting within walkable distance :)

But it was so crowded in the weekends, families flock to the Symphony Lake and there were so many gatherings of domestic foreign workers....it was bearable at certain intervals...but most of the time, the noise level was too much to withstand, even escaping to Food for Thought didn't help since the weekend brunch crowd was there...

Anaxagorea javanica flower! I am quite fascinated by Annonaceae flowers, they look so different.. You can actually see the beetles beneath the outer petals :)

My first Common Rose (Pachliopta aristolochiae)!!!! There are aplenty of them at the gardens, I guess the exotic Aristolochia species planted are really effective in attracting them to proliferate there :) If only, I can find the native Aristolochia species in the wild
