African Trees

While I was in Africa I was very intrigued by the beautiful and numerous trees.  They came in a large range of colors, sizes, and shapes.


This was one of my favorites.  It is a flamboya tree


Another favorite was the jacaranda tree


Look at the pretty pomegranates growing on this large shrub.


I have no idea what kind of tree this one is but I liked it.


Not to sure what this one is either.  Do any of you know?  There was a game going on underneath it that I accidentally walked across. They were playing with the seeds from this tree.


I felt so bad for walking across it.  Hopefully I didn't mess up their game.


I was told that these are fever trees.  


Here is another that I do not know.


I think I was told that these are acacia trees.  I had always wanted to see an acacia tree because they are in the bible.  In fact, that is what the Ark of the covenant was made of.  In Namibia they were abundant.  They reminded me of the mesquite trees here in Texas only they had yellow flowers when in bloom.  I guess I better go for now and get some Christmas decorating done.  I have tangled lights, and glitter dust, and piles of Christmas greenery all over my house.
I will be back soon with some more pictures from beautiful Namibia soon.  
Until Next Time

It would be amazing if you brought back some foliage from Africa. You're garden will be the talk of the town if you managed to bring back some African trees. LOL!

Oh how I wish I could have. They were so beautiful and so many tempting seeds lying around but I just didn't think the customs agents would think it was such a good idea and I am always aware that some beautiful plants in one part of the world turn into monsters in other parts. Purple loosestrife threatens many waterways in America now because they were so beautiful and someone thought they would look nice in their waterway.

those are all beautiful trees! I wish Alberta had a climate that would allow some more of the beautiful trees to grow here!

I've been in Africa before, and I was amazed by the amount of foliage in that country. The local culture was also very captivating. All the time I was there, I was wishing I could bring back one for my garden.
