We chanced the looming rain and visited the Botanical Gardens last night for the finale of the celebrations marking the Garden's 150th anniversary. We arrived at about 6.30pm to find Palm Valley already crowded with people having picnics and enjoying the evening. The kids charged down the slope to find the mud thick and just right for stomping in, and we squeezed in between the picnickers to enjoy the music.
We found Chatsworth's Peace Tree, and lots of others from Primary schools and centres around Singapore. All were beautifully decorated, some with recycled objects and tags the children had made. Unfortunately my photos don't do justice to the pretty sight of so many lights twinkling, so we will have to return when it's not raining to try for some better snaps.
The trees are alight every evening until the end of December, so do get down and enjoy the variety and scope of the decorations. You may even get lucky and catch a dry evening.
