Silk Floss Tree

A silk tree, the sign said.

Silk grows on trees?  I thought they were spun by snails?

Well, the flowers of the tree are the Silk Floss,Chorisia speciosa, which were not blooming then.

The spikes are decorative, but I suppose it also helps protect itself.

Just trying out the new macro lens.  I’d say it works.
