Lydia in Singapore Botanic Gardens

Let’s return to the sunny Singapore for a while! I took these pictures in June, just before we were due to leave it. I have already taken dolls to this Gardens before: Tonner dolls and my Lara, the Gotz doll. This time it was A Girl for All Time Lydia’s turn to have an outing! She is our Lydia No 3 and belongs to my younger daughter.

So, Singapore Botanic Gardens! The Botanic Gardens were established in 1859. These are the gates from the main road.

My favourite place in the Botanic Gardens. It’s the gazebo. It used to be known as The Bandstand and music performances took place there in the 1930s. It reminded me of England in the autumn, that’s why I loved it so much!

Singapore Botanic Gardens are huge. This is just one of the many beautiful roads there.

  1. These pictures are absolutely amazing! I’d love to visit Singapore, but I don’t know if I ever will. I HAVE visited Oxford, however, and intend to do so again, so am looking forward to seeing more pictures of this very beautiful city.

    1. Thank you so much, Pauline! Yes, Singapore is amazing. Very hot (and at the moment chocking with haze from Indonesian forest fires, as it does every year!) but very beautiful! I should definitely start taking dolls on our outings here. For the moment I am just enjoying the sunshine and the fresh air without having to carry a heavy camera plus a doll!! http://www.swish-swirl.com/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_yahoo.gif But I must start doing so soon!
