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”.
