Barringtonia racemosa

This is only one out of 84 shots I took of the flowers of a Barringtonia racemosa tree in West Coast Park. Uploading will take time, aiyah...

What beautiful flowers! I wish that I was able to live in an exotic place like Singapore! I am pretty sure that if I did, I would be taking pictures night and day! How do you pronounce, "Barringtonia racemosa?"

Thank you for your comment Camma. We are just lucky that our National Parks Board brings many Exotic flowers from other countries to us for our enjoyment of our many wonderful parks. The pronunciation of plant names can be found at this fantastic website:

I found out that Barringtonia racemosa is pronounced as bar-ring-TON-nee-uh ray-see-MO-suh

Alice I cannot wait to put the rest up you will really love them the way I fell in love with them. I want to do a good job so it will take time and I will let you know when it is done :-)
