Cannon Ball Tree Flower(Couroupita guianensis) by 

Visited the Botanical Garden this am and found this really unusual Tree, these are the Flowers, the stem and trunk are covered in spikey bits.The fruit is as large as coconuts and similar looking though without husks, hence the name Cannonball, apparently they are edible but the smell puts People off.
The Flowers smell lovely.
The Trees are grown from seeds and originally came from South America.
