Location : Mederka Square, Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysia.
For the sake of those outside Kuching we would like to share with you photos of this giant cotton tree which has been showering Kuching the last couple of days with its fluffy balls. Lots of people have been gathering below this tree which is blooming at the moment to catch the falling cotton balls with every gust of wind. The weather has been extra hot and the pods are exploding. On closer inspection the branches are thorny like durian. This year’s bloom is the biggest ever.
