A true beauty and probably a place to go to when haze invaded the island. Oh, yes. That was exactly what I did, so called a hiatus away from the terrible haze. So this time, I was invited to Gardens By The Bay (GBTB), which is an integral part of Singapore’s “City in a Garden” with a complete tour around which includes War of the Roses, The Sun Pavilion and Children’s Garden.
WAR OF ROSES
“War of Roses”, the floral display draws inspiration from an event of the same name that took place in 15th century England. The historical “War of the Roses” was a series of civil wars between the House of Lancaster and the House of York that were vying for the throne of England. Its name drew reference to the emblems associated with the two Houses – the Red Rose of Lancaster and the White Rose of York.
