Urban Surprises: Cordia dichotoma and Antidesma bunius

It is such a joy to find standing in some quiet forgotten corner in our urban sprawl a tree of rarity that somehow escaped the city's relentless development. Serendipity at its best! Here's two trees that I bummed into recently.

Cordia dichotoma at Still Road

Another Cordia dichotoma I found a few years ago in Yio Chu Kang Road. 

Buni or Antidesma bunius - a tree of past cultivation. Found in Upper East Coast Road
