sacred kapok tree

This is the trunk of a tree! Isn’t it fascinating? I’ve never seen anything like it. It is a sacred kapok or ceiba tree, one of a large variety of trees in the Jardin Etnobotanico in Oaxaca City, Mexico. I’ve also included below some bonus photos of tree stuffs in the garden. Previously I posted bird photos that include 3 birds I saw in the garden – you’ll find them here. (Earlier in the year, I posted a series of blogs about my January 2020 visit to Oaxaca City: the light shining through | hanging on a mountain | Kambuche posole | celebrating textiles | stone art.)
