I was walking along the embarkment of Seletar Reservoir when I noticed that it was covered with a creeper that had beautiful purplish flowers. At first glance I thought they looked like the morning glory flowers that I was familiar with that grew on fences or dangled from trees. But these flowers were creepers and had thick butterfly-shaped leaves. I wasn't sure if it was a specie of morning glory and searched for images on Google. Found out the name of this particular one and also discovered that there are hundreds to a thousand species of Morning Glory. It was mid-morning when I photographed these flowers and as can be seen, they were in the prime of their morning lives - sturdy and fresh without any wrinkles or sign of aging. What a way to live!
