One of My Favorite Trees: the Baobab Tree
There are many handsome --beautiful-- plants and animals in creation. Some are geometrically stunning. Proportioned perfectly. Others seem weird. Yet in their weirdness, there is a majestic quality not found in human substitutes.
For me, it's the Baobab tree. It is not what most of us would call your standard tree. It's certainly not a shade tree. It would be incredibly difficult for a kid to climb. Most people would not want to plant one in their yard. But there's just something special about it.
And, oddly enough, it is a useful tree. It produces edible fruit. And, interestingly, even the seeds (dried and pounded) are used for their good qualities. Found primarily in Madagascar, it's a tree one is not likely to forget. But then, you've seen the picture.
