Look At This Tree!

I worked on a Caregiver job for a few weeks in the Palmer Ranch area of South Sarasota. The lady I cared for had this unique tree near her home. The pictures do not do it justice. It is stunning!

I was told it is a Floss Silk tree. These beautiful flowers will be followed by pods that are embedded with silk-like floss that was once used to stuff pillows.

The trunk has a medieval appearance.
