Tulipmania at Gardens by the Bay

Having just come back from the Keukenhof gardens in Holland I was interested to see the tulip display that the Gardens by the Bay were hosting for a few weeks here in Singapore.
The display in the Flower Dome exceeded my expectations and it was certainly reminiscent of the displays in Holland and gives visitors a showcase of wonderful flowering bulbs that don't grow in Singapore due to the tropical conditions. Some 20000 plants have being flown in and to keep them fresh the Flower Dome temperature will be lowered during the display.
