Sentosa Flower Show 2009-Part 1(Palawan Beach)

This year flower show at Sentosa for Chinese New Year are held at two different locations. One is at Palawan Beach and the other at Impiah. Both places are in Sentosa.

There are not many flowers over at Palawan Beach but still I would like to share some of the photos that I took. Geez, so sorry....I dont know most of the names of the flowers.

Purple is my favourite colour and I like the above darker purple flowers. These are Gomphrena globosa (Globe amaranth)....thank you Mable for the names of the flowers.

Celosia cristata (Cockscomb).


Red Poinsettia

Zebra plant

Please return for more photos of landscape flowers and plants taken during the flower show in sentosa.
P.S. Thank you so much Mable for the names of the flowers (see comments). I am so educated today. I need to make a picture dictionary of flowers labelled according to colours and alphabetical

Very impressive colours.
I bet it's a authentic feast for the scents!

Lavender is a great choice.

Flowers blooming! I love when it's just warm enough here to plant annuals--everyone goes wild buying flats of flowers to plant in their gardens. The first to go in are usually some pansies, because they can withstand an unusually late blizzard or two.
