Educational Blogging

Their shape from a distance reminds me of the Joshua trees in the California Mojave desert.

So google is employed.



Now we know what Yoshua trees look like.
Tessa I can see the likeness but boababs are huge.



HUGE

We however have trees that look like Yoshua trees.



I present the Quivertree

But even more educational was.

This tree is not a Quivertree but a Bastard Quiver tree.
I did not know that trees did that

The most educational thing that I learned in all this was that all these trees are most probably family because they all have Latin sounding names.
