It's the spring season and countries like Korea and Japan have cherry blossom trees in full bloom. Alas, travelling is still out of the question, at least for now, and we won't be able to admire them in close proximity in real life.
But there's good news even in times of adversity, because Ulu Pandan Park Connector in Singapore has transformed into mini Japan with its Trumpet Trees.
Read on to find out more!
Trumpet Trees, dubbed "sakura lookalike" and "Singapore's cherry blossoms", have been flowering across Singapore, and many of them are located in neighbourhood areas - adding colour to the estate and bringing smiles to residents.
While you can find them all around our sunny island (some have spotted them in Sembawang, Pasir Ris, Woodlands, Bishan and more), the ones at Ulu Pandan Park Connector took our breaths away!
Also known as Tabebuia Rosea, the flowers come in beautiful pastel pink shades that closely resemble cherry blossom petals (thanks to their colour) when they fall to the ground.
Upon closer look though, you will see that the flowers are, in fact, quite different from cherry blossoms - they come in a trumpet-like shape, which explains their name.
There is a line of Trumpet Trees at the Ulu Pandan Park Connector, with some of the flowers in pink, and the others in white. Imagine exercising or walking under the trees with the petals falling while the wind blows - sounds like a scene straight out of an anime!
The Trumpet Trees are typically in full bloom between March and April, and are triggered by heavy rains after hot and dry spells, according to NParks.
The soft pastel hues and petals littering the floor will make great backdrops for some IG-worthy photos as well.
Go catch them soon before the season is over, otherwise, you will probably have to wait till August and September to see them in bloom once again!
