Hey again,

Having come from a country that has been termed “concrete jungle” due to the high rise buildings found almost everywhere in Singapore, I tend to visit places with lots of nature when I am away from home.

And it is such a pleasure to be here during the Spring season and seeing flowers everywhere.

Colourful Spring Flowers

On weekdays, I would walk along the river just five minutes away from my apartment to catch the sunset. On one occasion, I spotted a swan which eventually swam towards the riverside where I was standing. Although I heard that they can be dangerous, I couldn’t resist going slightly closer to snap a photo of this beautiful bird!

I have visited a number of places in Germany but my favourite so far is the Wihelma Botanical Garden and Zoo in Stuttgart. The weather was perfect the day I was there as it was not too cold. It was such a treat to see the animals enjoying the warm spring weather but it was even more wonderful to see the beautiful flowers that were blooming at almost every corner. Words cannot describe the beauty that was displayed there. So I am going to leave you with some of the pictures I took while I was there.
