“Cherry Blossom” Season in Singapore

Singapore’s been having a bit of a weird weather recently. It would be hot and sunny in the morning with thunderstorms in their full glory in the evening. It would be SO hot and humid to sleep at night and then it would be cool and rainy the other. It was even slightly hazy this evening. Used to be that I would know when to keep an umbrella handy, nowadays I just keep an umbrella around since I could never predict the weather.

However, nothing has surprised me more than the news that Singapore has its very own version of cherry blossoms here. And they are blooming like crazy. They say that it’s due to the long drought that we recently had. The rain that came after the drought has apparently brought on the crazy blossoming of flowers here.

I’ve seen it in passing when travelling around and can say that they are extremely pretty!!! These photos posted captures the beautiful flowering trees very nicely.

I don’t expect this to last for very long though so if you happen to be in Singapore during this period, do keep a lookout for these flowers!! They are everywhere now. 🙂

    • Awww, that’s fast!! I think it’s the best feeling for spring to see the sakura on the trees. Did they bloom a bit later this time round?

      I have yet to visit during the sakura season but I would love to visit Hirosaki castle grounds during this period. I went there during winter and it is such a beautiful area, I’m sure it would look even more beautiful during the blooming period.
