While looking through my photos of Zimbabwe I found the following SOLID object or subject!
Just look how small the people are against this massive tree.
When this tree dies there will be nothing left.
Wood is so soft it just disintegrates
The Baobab Tree is also known as the tree of life, with good reason. It can provide shelter, clothing, food, and water for the animal and human inhabitants of the African Savannah regions. The cork-like bark and huge stem are fire resistant and are used for making cloth and rope. The leaves are used as condiments and medicines. The fruit, called “monkey bread”, is edible, and full ofVitamin C. The tree can store hundreds of litres of water, which is tapped in dry periods.[source?] Mature trees are usually hollow, providing living space for many animals and humans.[source?] Trees are even used as bars, barns, wine and beer shops and more.[source?] Radio-carbon dating has measured that age of some Baobab trees at over 2,000 years old. For most of the year, the tree is leafless, and looks very much like it has its roots sticking up in the air.

Ek het ook na myne gekyk maar daar was orals mense by!
Ek weet, mense moet mos maar in die prentjie wees!
A beautiful tree, looks very protective.
Come to think of it, it looks like that!
Solid and majestic! Thank you, Scrapydo!
You’re welcome! 🙂
I love Baobabs:
Me too, when you are up north in Limpopo(South Africa) it is marvelous to see here and there these big tall Boabab’s towering above the other trees
