I took the photos of these beautiful flowers of the CannonBall Tree at the Singapore Botanic Gardens on 8 Mar 10.

Ironically, on my way to the office following that, I passed by Tanglin Road and saw stands of these trees pruned off the flowers and cannon ball fruits up to at least 2 m from the ground.

It is such a pity and I can imagine the pretty sight lined by the row of flowering trees before the pruning. Seriously, I wonder why they were removed at all.
