I like to stop and smell the flowers. I'm not a plant expert, but I do enjoy counting petals, looking for bees, and trying to focus the camera on close-ups (mostly a fail). There is constant wonder and appreciation for the complex natural systems that surround us. Surprisingly, #cacao seems to find its way into my days and thoughts -- bar in hand or not. 🌳🌺 This is the flower of the #silkflosstree , or #ceibaspeciosa . From the family #malvaceae (same as cacao!); thousands of species fall into this family and its orders, including #okra , #hibiscus , #cotton , #durian , #lindentree . It caught my attention for its bright pink and mango tones, although another tree was flowering white flowers. The trees had a #baobab like (another relative to cacao!) trunk, and was speckled with thorns -- which initially made me think of durian and thus if it could be related to #theobromacacao . It's native to South America (also like cacao, tah-dah!).
