Colourful Flowers Bloom Across Singapore, As If Spring Is Here

Spring might not be an official season in our hot and humid city. However, the diverse foliage on our island is in full bloom, providing a splash of colour to our little red dot.

Many Singapore residents caught sight of beautiful flowers blooming across our island yesterday (24 Mar), and shared pictures of them online.

If you want to witness the ‘spring season’ yourself, here are some notable finds from eagle-eyed netizens.

1. Trumpet tree at Simei

At this time of the year, cherry blossoms usually trigger our wanderlust.

For travel-starved locals who miss Japan’s springtime attractions, our very own gorgeous trumpet tree seems to be a gorgeous alternative.

A netizen joked it should be called ‘sakulah’, and we think it might fit.

2. Yellow Saraca at Serangoon Park Connector

The yellow saraca is a relative of the ashoka tree, which are considered sacred in India. In Sanskrit, ashoka means ‘without sorrow’ so if you’re feeling down, we hope these striking flowers may uplift your spirits.
