Rainbow After Dry Spell!

This is what we called “Rainbow after rain”. Many places are showered with white and pink flowers after the recent dry spell.

Getting to know Trumpet Tree (Tabebuia rosea)

The Trumpet Tree grows up to 18-25m tall, and has a large, broadly conical and shady crown. The tree’s name comes from its large trumpet-shaped flowers, which range in colour from pink to white.

The fruits are elongated pods, which split open to released winged seeds. This tree is known for its impressive flowering display, where the entire tree is spectacularly covered in blossoms. This takes place in April and August, usually after a dry spell.

When they flowers fall, they retain their colour for a couple of days, forming a beautiful carpet of flowers around the tree.

I was stunned by the sight in front of me when the mrt passed by this area and I decided to make a trip down the next day via a bus ride that stop right at the International Business Park for some photo-shoots of the site.

This ‘lamb’ happened to be nicely seated under the Pink Trumpet Tree. It was gone when I made the trip back to the bus stop. It would be nice if a white bicycle was there instead. Quite a dreamy one I guess 😉

I have never came to this area before and was a little stunned by the greenery here! With the blooming of the Trumpet Trees, it beautified the place even more.

Such bloomings were sighted at many parts of Singapore lately. I was a little late now and I guess I could only shoot more at other parts of the island in August. But then it would means dry spell in June and July? Kind of a dilemma huh! 😮
