Our beautiful City in its myriad of colours

collage1Our recent drought was the longest dry spell in our history. It was broken in the middle of March.

Once the rain came, the grasses regained their greenery and trees came back to life. The drought had triggered a massive flowering of the trees, transforming our landscapes into a myriad of colours.

Nature has its own pattern and order.

Our natives such as the Syzygium species, the Pelong (Pentaspadon motley) and Pianggu (Horsfieldia irya) flowered first.

They were followed by the pink and mauve-flowered Trumpets (Tabebuia rosea), the Pink Mempats (Cratoxylum formosum) and the red Crape Myrtle (Lagerstroemia) trees.
Finally, came the yellow blooms from the Golden Penda (Xanthostemon chrysanthus), the Golden Shower (Cassia fistula), the Angsana (Pterocarpus indicus) and the Yellow flame (Peltophorum pterocarpum).

We rejoiced at these displays of nature.  Many posted and shared their photos online. NParks received over 4,200 photos on its Facebook and Instagram pages. Among the many entries, these five photos stood out.

They show how beautiful Singapore is. As we enjoy these flowers, let us renew our commitment to the greening of our little green dot, our Home.
