Welcome to the Botanic Gardens.

 A Singapore/Dog-themed photo post, since it is the first day of Chinese New Year, and one’s thoughts inevitably turn towards home. Back to the jungle, comrades.SAM_0589

Welcome to the Botanic Gardens.

A thirsty Riley clambered onto the fountain to get a drink

(Don’t worry, we pulled her down and gave her a proper drink. After snapping photos of course)

For need of some human presence: the not-so-photogenic biped on the right happens to be me.

I loved the atmosphere at the botanic gardens. The balmy weather, the many dogs getting a long awaited day out, families and children chatting comfortably in Singlish amidst towering tropical trees that mark out a small but familiar and very well-loved landscape. This Christmas there was nowhere else that I felt more of that elusive sentiment that says “this is home”.

““I’m planting a tree to teach me to gather strength from my deepest roots.”  ~Andrea Koehle Jones, The Wish Trees

Happy chinese new year everyone! Have a fruitful year ahead (:
