Hi everyone,
Cochlospermum religiosum (Yellow Silk Cotton tree) is flowering  !!
 
One seen at Godrej Mangrove Park, Vikhroli, Mumbai, Maharashtra, India on 20th Dec. 2008
OneYellow silk cotton tree stands in a compound of a building near Lalubhai Park, Andheri (W), Mumbai. It was good to discover the tree here & I could notice it only due to the yellow flowers covering the tree on 17th Jan 2009 :)
 
Check the beautiful flowers images & more details of the tree here:  en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cochlospermum
 
Cheers,
Tejal   Vishweshwar
