You know I've been saving this one :)
Above is a Baobab Tree. Known as the Tree of Life, they are native to Madagascar, Africa and Australia, and have been carbon-dated up to 6,000 years old. This one in Zambia has been installed with a long drop toilet, but they can grow so large that one in Limpopo province, south Africa has been hollowed out (the tree itself measures 154 feet in circumference) and turned into the world's first pub in a tree, The Big Baobab Bar.
Is it just me, or do they look a little young to be in a bar!
With January turning to February, our month-long look at the tree and some of the art it's inspired has come to an end. In actuality, I will more than likely continue to post quite regularly on the tree and nature in general - it's been a continuing theme here all along.
Did you know today is Escape Day? A favourite quick escape of mine is to listen to a podcast of Coast to Coast while taking a hot bath. I find conspiracy theories, alien abductions and bigfoot sightings very relaxing, lol! What's one of yours?
