Today is the Gardener's Day at Hort Park. We went there in the morning to see what is in there. Jay Jay designed and planted his own flower pot. He looks so happy about it.
I think during school holidays, NParks will always host a Gardeners' Day Out event.
When we get there, is a lot of people already.
This time, they held the event at the entrance lobby.
So, what can you do here? Of course let your kid plant their own flower pot. You pay $20 for a flower pot or you can design a $5 hanging pot. Jay Jay choose to design the flower pot.
Jay Jay choose a rather big green clay pot.
So, the first thing to do, is to lay a layer of these funny looking round round thingy. Not sure what they call it.
Next, add the soil. The soil is a very loosely compound, also not sure what it is made of. So, you layer the soil to 3/4 height.
He is enjoying it!
You can pick three pots of flowers.
This Jay Jay, when ask him to post for me, all these funny look will come. HaHaHa
This is his favourite part. Plug the flower out and plant it.
If needed, add more soil.
Then, we need to choose a type of pebbles and cover on top of the soil.
He has to evenly place the pebble on top and cover the whole soil.
Then, we spray some water on the roots. Jay! Don't destroy these roots.
The gardener came and corrected him. Show him the way how to water the plant.
Jay Jay completed his flower pot. "PaPa… it's heavy!"
Wait a minute. Where is Kay Kay? He is rocking the chair la...
He is yawning in the air con room la.
He is playing under the seat, on the carpet la.
Mean while, mommy and Jay Jay is trying to figure out how to design a new dripping system for watering the plant.
They are also interested in the new products. That is why they are very focus listening the presentations.
Okay, that's enough time spent at the Gardeners' Day Out. It's time to go. Hey… look this RED dragonfly just keep coming back and rest on the stone. Jay Jay, touch the tail lightly… ok?
3-2-1 blast off… There goes the red dragonfly.
Hey this red dragonfly keep on coming back. Let's do the 3-2-1 lift off again!
OK. We all are hungry. So, we stop by Culina for lunch.
Jay Jay's favourite fresh French oysters.
And how can we forgot about the kid who loves to taste my wine?
It's a great outing in the morning.
I think this week is still school holidays … that is why many activities are around town, here and there...

We have Outdoor Movie showing at Bishan Park.
We have old vintage car show at the Tanjong Pagar Train Station.
