I certainly can’t take a photo, but I can find one. Now the trick is will it stick! I hope you are all enjoying your Monday morning. I going to take it easy today and just focus on one thing at a time. I rarely do that.

Do you have lots of snails in your area?

Love ItLove It

Macro Monday

This is the flower of the cannon ball tree. The tree gets its name from the huge cannon ball sized fruits which hang on its trunk and branches. Its botanical name is Couroupita guianensis.

The flowers are mildly scented and have a hood like projection that gives it local name snake hood flower. The flowers are velvety soft and shimmer in the sun. They are delicate and break easily even though they seem big and strong. In the flowering season they hang like huge bouquet of  flowers on the tree trunks and it is a wonderful sight to see,

The leaves are oval wide, dark green and shiny. This huge tree grows up to 60 feet in height. I have not seen these tree grow in large numbers.

The flower picture belong to the author.
