Singapore: Hort Park

Hort ParkA sign in the main entrance states that Hort Park is ‘an inspiring story of 80 key industry partners from the local horticulture and landscape industry coming together to create a beautiful public community space’.

Although there are some well tended areas, a large number of the showcase gardens, which have been created by companies and individuals, look as if they could do with a bit of maintenance or perhaps digging up and starting again. The garden containing half a car decorated with old wheel rims and steering wheels in the ground must have been inspired by the ‘English country cottage nutcase’ movement of the late 1970s.

I don’t think Mrs M was all that inspired.
