Time to put your cameras to good use.

In case you didn’t notice, a number of trees in Singapore are experiencing fresh blooms and their coloured leaves and flowers in red and yellow have left streets and expressways on our island looking somewhat autumn-ish.

Perfect opportunity to up your Instagram game this weekend.

Here are some photos provided courtesy of NParks.

There’s even a video from a Facebook user showing a walkway looking really dreamy with the red leaves. According to the user, you can find it near the CTE in Ang Mo Kio between Ave 5 and Ave 3.

Here’s the video.
