The Bloom of the Garden City
Chase Away the Gloom of the Haze

A thing of beauty is a joy for ever
It's loveliness increases; it will never
Pass into nothingness; but still will keep
A bower quiet for us, and a sleep
Full of sweet dreams, and health,
and quiet breathing.
from Endymon, John Keats

All of a sudden everywhere all over Singapore since early March, the talk of the town was about the weather, the rain and the sun, the haze and the heatwave.

These few days so many Facebook friends have posted photos of the beautiful flowers captured in red, pink, white, yellow and purple.

Xiang Yun posted to her Facebook page:

Good morning! We did not expect that its the season in Singapore. Flowers blossoming everywhere, it's beautiful! Thank God to bestow on us the blessings of Mother Nature!

Since when so many years or decades ago that these beautiful sceneries in various parts of Singapore was blessed by Mother Nature to feast our eyes to watch.  Please capture these photos wherever you are located and share them with us.  Thanks to the National Parks Board to plant these floral plants and trees over the decades and they are now blooming.

Please enjoy them as more photos are uploaded by friends and contributors to Facebook for us to share on the blog.  

In March, 2010, Wild Singapore posted "Sakura" Season in Singapore too.

The Straits Times and Today  also published similar news about the blooming in the Garden City of Singapore.

The flowering trees are planted all over Singapore since the annual tree-planting campaigns with seedling or saplings at various constituencies by our "national gardeners", our "citizen gardeners" and everyone.  With their tender, loving care for the trees to grow tall and strong.  At the right time, right season of the Garden City of Singapore blooms and grow with the best of every types of flowers for us to enjoy.  Beautiful!
