Every end marks a new beginning
The rare Talipot Palm (Corypha umbraculifera) is flowering for the first and the last time after 80 years of growth.
Over the next few months, it will produce some 24 million tiny flowers, and hopefully some seed, before it finally withers (by courtesy of Singapore Botanic Gardens).
If life ends with 24 million of flowers in exchange of a new dream, it’s just like the story of fireworks; it ends and relives our hope again!

That second picture reminds me of a can-can dancer, lifting her leafy skirt to show us her petticoat!! I adore trees, and adore this post, Ess. 🙂

so are they going to save the seeds and try to start new plants then? I know if I lived near it I would. I would try to start as many plantings in pots I can get them nice and big and replant if I was allowed. it is beautiful tree.

I’m not working in the botanic garden, so I’m not sure Nparks will do it or not?
But I guess most probably they will, even not, I’m sure the seeds will find his own way!
This is the most beautiful path on earth! 🙂
