This Week’s Theme: Gardens

With today’s MotD, I add yet another “Sites to Visit” to my bucket list. What an amazing collaboration between humans and Mother Nature. Jan Hecking captured this upper level view allowing us to easily see the trees from top to bottom. I love the geometric patterns surrounding each tree. Lots of math, science, nature, and art going on here.

Located in central Singapore, this grove of SuperTrees inhabits a portion of a nature park spanning 250 acres called “Gardens by the Bay“.

About the trees from the GardensByTheBay.com.sg site:

Measuring between 25 and 50 metres tall, these iconic tree-like vertical gardens are designed with large canopies that provide shade in the day and come alive with an exhilarating display of light and sound at night. …

Of the 18 Supertrees in Gardens by the Bay, 12 of them can be found here at Supertree Grove, with the tallest one measuring up to 16 storeys in height.

Make a trip to the top of one of these iconic Supertrees and be awed by splendid views of the Gardens and the surrounding Marina Bay area. Or, stroll along the 22-metre-high OCBC Skyway, a 128-metre aerial walkway that connects two of the Supertrees, and see the Gardens from a different point of view.

Check out their Our Story and Fascinating Facts pages for more photos and details about these trees and the gardens. View an interesting 3:13 minute video about the trees and gardens.

Inspiration for Today

“Nature is based on harmony. So it says if we want to survive and become more like nature, then we actually have to understand that it’s cooperation versus competition.”
