Cool! You need more people to give that tree a proper hug.

Beautiful pictures of the tree, Carole.
You need at least 10 people need to give a hug this tree.
Greetings Irma

A group hug was needed to embrace this tree. Very impressive specimen Carole. Are they relatives of the Boab trees found up in the Kimberley? Enjoy your trip.

...they're different it seems Linley. See this blog post Boabs, Boababs and Bottles at http://talkingplants.blogspot.com.au/2010/07/boabs-boababs-and-bottles.html

Having Julie in the photo really shows how big the tree is.

Mona, I didn't give the tree a hug; it was just a quick photo-shoot stop and then on our way to the big destination that day; coming up in future posts.

Gosh Carole, kicking myself... you're taking us on a trip and I'm lagging behind.
Catching up - I do enjoy seeing those Bottle Trees, something about them. That one's a beauty :D)

No trees like that here! I love the diversity of plant life in various ecosystems, it's one of my favorite parts of traveling.

The tree looks like some giant root vegetable Carole.
