Cotton Tree at Singapore Botanic Gardens :)

I was on my way to Jacob Ballas Children’s Garden 2 Saturdays ago… guess what I saw on my way there?

Cotton Tree in full bloom! Am I in Christmas Land on a Summer day or what? haha…

Where can the Cotton Tree be found in Singapore Botanic Gardens?

I know there’s one at the Bukit Timah Core (near the Botanic Garden Station currently under construction and the Botanic Garden sidegate along Cluny Road) and another in Tanglin Core (near Taman Serasi Food Court)
