I was walking along the park connector next to Sungei Tampines at Pasir Ris when I saw a lot of cotton wool on the ground. Later, I remarked to M that some inconsiderate people had a pillow fight there. She laughed and told me I so goodnu. The cotton were from the Kapok Tree lining the river.
So the next day I went again and this time I saw this. Cotton bud from a pod on the ground!
I looked up and was amazed to see this tree and a few others along the whole stretch.
And there were plenty of bud on the trees including some that has burst open.
Picked up a pod from the ground and bought it home for a close up shot
The cotton inside the pod.
And to think that I have passed this place countless time and never noticed them before until now. Sometime I really need to stop running and smell the flowers!
