If you’ve noticed blooms in lovely pink hues across the island lately, well, you’re not alone. On Monday, NParks took to Facebook with gorgeous photos of trumpet trees — they get their name from their trumpet-shaped flowers — captured by people all over Singapore, from roadsides to parks. And it sparked off a wave of netizens offering their own snapshots of these pretty plants everywhere from Nicoll Highway and Robertson Quay to Yishun and Pasir Panjang to Bishan and Pasir Ris.
