Scented walk in the forest


Originally uploaded by lekowala.

This morning’s walk with Ladybug and Otterman from Macritchie to Bukit Timah summit was really very pleasant. The air was cool from last night’s rain and this flowers were in bloom and released a jasmine-like fragrance. I remarked about the nice scent permeating the forest at Sime Road but alas to the zoologist like Otterman, he commented that it was like Macaque urine. It belongs to a vine and was flowering in synchrony along the forest patches we walked through. Figs and the Bat lily seem to be flowering as well. Another masting event, albeit a low-key one?
