Fascinating Trees!

I’ve been having a wonderful exchange the past several days with friend (at least for my part) and übertalented artist Dieter Tracey when the topic of our beloved and also übertalented resident Baobab lady came up. I’ve always been fascinated by the dendritic and variety of forms trees take and hold them in almost deific regard for their stately presence, endurance, and life-giving properties. This eventually led me to google “baobab” just to see what I could see, and here was one page that I found thoroughly absorbing:

Fantastic collection of stunning trees

The bonuses at the end make for a fascinating read: the first because the ludicrous nature of the tree’s self-‘ownership’ subtly mocks the convoluted arena of property law, and the second because it’s equal parts comedy, tragedy, and stupidity.

Hope you enjoy the read as much as I did!

Cheers,

Tula

P.S. And as far as I’m concerned, Baobab lady’s baobab photos überly kick the article’s baobab images’ arses.

P.P.S. Über’s a helluva fun word to say.
