Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge; Things that are Rough


Kapok Tree

The Kapok tree is a tropical tree, found in Central and South America, and also in parts of Southern Africa, and is also known as Java Cotton.   The tree has a very rough spiny bark, as you can see, and can grown to about 200 feet high.   The tree produces seed pods, from which Kapok fibre is taken, and this is useful for filling mattresses, upholstery and soft toys, even though the tree itself doesn’t look too cuddly!
