It started off with a meeting outside the Ecolab, pleasantly complemented by the harmonious chirping of the birds (or so I imagined) and the sight of hummingbirds hovering over the flowers.
Gone with December were the rain and the cold breeze. Hence, my mini exploration took place under the bright cheery morning sun. In fact, it was quite ideal because the plants seemed so bright and cheerful as well.
Without hesitation, I went straight to the tree house.
Soon, I reached the mini rubber plantation which seemed an amazing find in Science Centre Singapore, and the medicinal garden where healing plants can be found. This was the end of my short exploration of the Ecogarden and I was secretly hoping to find wolfberries on the wolfberry plants, though my wish did not come true.
My spirit was however lifted when I saw the rambutan tree blooming with its little red fruits. Seeing flowering or fruit-bearing trees/plants seemed to give cheer and hope to the place. May our rambutan tree in the Ecogarden continue to bloom and bear lots of rambutans!
If you like nature, you will probably like this cosy little corner behind the Science Centre Singapore, which I learned subsequently is 10,000 square metres big.
Note: To identify a tree which I captured on photograph, I went to the Ecogarden a second time. More will be shared in “Exploration of the Science Centre Singapore Ecogarden (Part 2)”.
