The recent period hot and dry weather followed by sudden rain triggered the mass blooming of the Trumpet Trees (Tabebuia rosea) across the island. We call it the Singapore Sakura Season. The blooms typically comes in white, pinkish white and hot pink colours, just like sakura or cherry blossom. They are pretty to admire at but remember not to park your car underneath the tree as the flowers are rather sticky and you will have a hard time clearing it off the surface of the vehicle. Sorry for the hazy pictures, this is due to transboundary haze from a certain neighbouring country’s uncontrolled slash and burn method of clearing vegetation for agricultural purposes.
