Fluffy white cotton balls against a blue sky

No, I don’t mean clouds – these really are balls of white cotton!

They grow inside the pods of a ‘kapok’ tree and, when they’re ready, they burst into fluffy white cotton balls.

We saw quite a few of them in the Bukit area of south Bali, were we stayed this weekend.

...fit to burst

It’s sometimes called silk cotton and it can be used for cushions – as well as material for my blog… hahahah.

In fact, all my new cushions have kapok inside them, including this one – which has a recycled rice bag covering:

This ‘Elephant’ brand recycled rice bag cushion sits in our bale (gazebo) in the garden next to the river.  A perfect place for relaxing, meditating, reading your book or browsing the net.  To see more: https://rumahjepun.wordpress.com/
