Dear friends,

A few pictures of seedlings of Ceiba pentandra. The seeds have sprouted in the pod itself. Taken on 20th June 2011 from Palakkad district, Kerala.

Dear Sandhya
The picture is indeed unique and awesome. Will all the seedlings survive?

Thank you friends for your appreciation. This is the first time that I
am seeing these seedlings. It was indeed amazing. There were so many
pods under the tree all sprouting... we were at a loss as to what to
do with them. We did plant some. But couldn't manage the whole lot. I
don't know whether they would survive. The area was having quite heavy
rains these days.

Regards,
Sandhya

Sandhya ji,
very nice Foto. It reminded me of the custom in Bavaria and Austria of planting small flowers in old Trecking shoes. Especially in the entrance of the huts in mountains, one finds old Schoes with beautiful flowers.I must be having a couple of  fotos but as slides.
Found one Foto on net:
http://www.yatego.com/utes-geschenke/p,4b6ffc4739819,4937fa8868f4e1_2,blumentopf-pflanztopf-schuhe?sid=04Y1315586910Y120e91966ec1673c3a

But I feel like telling you my experience in one hut, when we were trecking. The huts in the Alps are normally in the wilderness, many time no electricity and earth closet some 50 meters away.  One evening before going to sleep I thought I would go to WC. With my torch lit I went into the wc, kept the torch on a small wooden board, I wanted my both hands free. My torch, it was a round one, rolled down thru the hole. Well, I had light as long as I was in WC, but my way back was difficult. I stumbled a couple of times. Anyway got back with all my limbs intact, safely.
The Lesson I learnt: never take a round torch with you, when going trecking.

Regards
Nalini
