Posted on May 18, 2014 by WillemSaturday/ Southern African trees I am doing a (late) spring cleaning of my stuff in my study, and found these Southern African tree post cards. I want to frame them, but will have to get to it next weekend ! My favorite tree? It has to be the legendary boabab. That’s me in the picture, showing how big the trunk of a boabab tree is. This was in Botswana, some 25 years ago.
