Early April, we have the pink flowers blooming, especially the Trumpet trees. They remind me of the Sakura in Japan.
I have seen trumpet flowers blooming years ago when I was in my school days along AYE expressway. They were beautiful. Usually these flowers bloom in late March to early April but they do not last long. Within a week, they are all gone. It had been quite some time since I last travelled along AYE.

The pink bloom was almost gone when we reach. So the Trumpet trees located here look almost like "normal" green trees. Seriously, I have yet to differentiate each tree by simply looking at their crown or leaves. I wonder how possibly to do that without looking at the flowers or fruits. Probably, it was never possible. :P Anyway, I did not try capture any pretty pink blooms with my camera as they look insignificant in my camera screen.
|The tree with the white flowers. Believe it is just under the Trumpet tree. Look at the pink trumpet flowers which had already fallen.|
|I love this flowering bushes. Some flowers are with spots|

|Heh! I have taken many shots from these plants. :P|
|I am not sure what flowers are these. Looks like Frangipani but the petals arrangement looks more like a pinwheel to me. Also, the centre of these flowers are less yellowish as compared to Frangipani.|

It's the yellow flowers' turn to bloom. Other yellow flowers, eg Golden Showers, are blooming in other areas of Singapore too. The one I have capture is the more commonly found ones, I think, I spotted them in at least 3 areas. I spot some in my own neighbourhood too!
|These , I think, are Xanthostemon chrysanthus. (Golden Penda)|
