:: Autumn Flowers: Ceiba Speciosa :5:

At the beginning of autumn, these trees bloom to the point of losing all their leaves. Their trunks present large thorns and the mature fruits expel seeds wrapped in white fiber allowing to spread them for a wide distance. These fibers are thinner than cotton’s and are used to fill pillows and plush toys.

No começo do outono, estas árvores florescem até perder todas as folhas. Seus troncos apresentam grandes espinhos e os frutos maduros lançam as sementes envoltas em fibra branca permitindo que se espalhem por grande distância. Estas fibras são mais finas que as do algodão e são usadas para encher almofadas e brinquedos de pelúcia.
