My flower and Tree of the month is Ceiba speciosa also known as Floss Silk Tree with Pink flowers.
It is in bloom now, and it is always a spectacular sight! Notice its incredibly vibrant colours and the creamy satiny texture of its petals.
Another tree of the same family-Ceiba insignis, White Floss Silk Tree also blooms at the same time and also spectacularly!
Wild and native in South America, now it is naturalised in India and is a tree widely planted for its blooms in parks and roads!
