The Blossom of the Shaving Brush Tree


There is a tree outside of our cottage at the Golden Rock Inn on Nevis that blossoms in the morning and by mid-day the blossoms have fallen to the ground. Bombax ellipticum -- or The Shaving Brush Tree -- a deciduous tree native to Mexico and Central America.

 Yesterday morning's harvest of flowers was quite bounteous. This morning's not so much.
