Barely 1 month from my previous post, flowers are now in bloom!
Amazing! How the numerous showers give rise to flowers blooming all over Singapore in such a short span! Greens are now a rich, luxurious, healthy green (if you didn’t manage to witness how brown our grass patches had been just a month ago, well, too bad); red, white, pink, yellow, violet, what beautiful colors of the flowers (nope, I’m not talking about those plants owned by someone. I’m referring to the ‘wild’ trees that line our roads and streets). Hmm… Did we used to have these flowers before the dry spell? I really didn’t take much notice previously!
How we take things for granted! The grasses are back to their green, and life goes back to normal for everyone. Not that it was any abnormal for any one previously – no one bothers to save water (except for the malls that closed their water parks during the dry spell). No one reminded any one, nor any one reminded yourself to do your part for the environment. The dry spell came and went. No lessons learnt. No actions done.
Baby1 and I were nonetheless very relieved. Even if the population at large were oblivious or the experience forgotten, I am still grateful that our trees are green now, and Baby1 appreciates the green and red and white and pink and yellow and violet more now.
