No Ordinary Tree

The Baobab plane is no ordinary tree with a wide trunk girth, the shape of a barrel. This tree species is a possible cloned hybrid of the London Plane. There is speculation as to how old they are, dating back at least 200 years. I have started to come across them quite a bit in England. From Canterbury to Hammersmith. How many have you come across while in England? This is no everyday Brown and my Life in Colour Photo Challenge contribution.

  1. I just recently learned bout the nutritional benefits of baobab fruit power (and bought some). What a unique-looking tree, great photos 🙂
