We are lucky to live in an area with wonderful flowers and trees. This one tree in particular caught my eye. It’s huge, and gorgeous! It’s in what looks like a beautiful corner park with a waterlily pond and other beautiful trees and plants. It’s probably private property so I didn’t want to stand my husband under the tree for perspective, but hopefully my photos give some idea of the magnificence of this tree.
If my googling and internet research have pointed me in the right direction, this is a ceiba tree. Apparently there are different varieties, so if I keep an eye on it to see what kind of flowers and/or fruit it produces, that should help me identify it further. There is another huge tree in the neighborhood that appears to be the same type of tree. This one is in the side yard of someone’s house.
There are many other interesting trees in the area but these two are by far the biggest. I’m sure they are not the last that I will be sharing!
