The afternoon was extremely hot with the sun beating down on us as if punishing those who dared venture out in the open. Undeterred, I donned my broad-brimmed straw hat, pat on ample sunblock on my face and arms and went outdoors anyway. Walking along the largely unsheltered Henderson Waves bridge with the traffic below was not exactly a nice day on the beach but it was great to have the greenery shared by so few people for a change. The tall trees around were unfazed by the weather and the variety in such a small area was astounding. For the first time, I actually paid attention to them - African Tulip trees, Rain trees, palms, tembusu trees, bamboo, Pulai trees because no flowers were within sight till I reached the other end of the bridge and saw this clump of Dillenia Suffruticosa shrubs.

Octovia and an interesting shadow cast by a flower or perhaps these monkeys.
