During one of my trips to Durban city, i stumbled upon a beautiful tree. I had to stop and drive back to the spot!
Fluffy flower... that's what i googled, and here it was, my fluffy wonder!

Needless to say i immediately planned a necklace featuring it. A bit more research told me its name was Barringtonia racemosa, and that it was, in fact, a mangrove tree. Durban being such a humid place, the tree likes it and grows there, even though its feet are not in water, but in concrete (go figure Nature). For more info go to

Oh, yes, and it does look like the designers of the world of Avatar could have been inspired by it for the "pure spirits of Aiwa"

What if you could wear them?

The barringtonia flower and a blossom
That's all for today!
