The grand white cotton silk tree.


A 200-year-old tree that stands tall at one of Bangalore’s oldest gardens, the Lalbagh Gardens, which might have had an injury to its trunk at some point in time but seems like it never gave up because the branches spread out right from across the roots that are spread out over a very large area. The peculiar shape of the tree makes it very unique and one that is hard to miss. If you ever happen to visit Lalbagh, do make it a point to see this tree, one of the 15 odd Cotton Silk trees that the garden boasts of.

I was stumped by the sheer beauty of the tree and the fact that it made me think how we can work around our imperfections so admirably!


Joining Parul today for her #ThursdayTreelove post, which is a photo feature on Parul’s blog and is hosted on 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month. where you get to see many other beautiful trees from many different places.
