Singapore's Chess Avenue

Let's pretend that the blog's downtime never happened (see Site Available Again for an explanation), and just pick up where we left off a week ago. That means today is Flickr Friday.

Giant chess pieces covered with flowers -- what's that all about? The photo's caption said,

The floral display at the Gardens by the Bay during the Singapore Garden Festival 2016.

The festival's official site, in Our Story, explains,

Enter a magical world of exciting garden designs and exquisite floral creations as Singapore goes into full bloom this July at the Singapore Garden Festival 2016. Whether you are a serious gardener, hobbyist or just looking for a wonderful day out with the family, you are in for delightful treats at the Festival. Held at the award winning Gardens by the Bay, this year’s Festival promises to be more spectacular than ever before.

Wikipedia, in Gardens by the Bay, informs,

Gardens by the Bay is a nature park spanning 101 hectares (250 acres) of reclaimed land in central Singapore, adjacent to the Marina Reservoir. The park consists of three waterfront gardens.

That plus the festival site's home page saying,

We’ll be back in 2018!

tells us everything we need to know.
