No, not a tree I'd care to hug. ;)
We need them either way!Happy WW!
Doews look a bit prickly
Oh, I've seen this tree in Egypt. I wish I could remember what it is called. You are right -- they really are nasty looking. But then, think of rose bushes, which also have thorns.
ouch! not my kind of tree.. Happy ww. thanks for the blog visit.
Do they have Shade Tree committees in Israel? Here in Highland Park, NJ we have a shade tree committee that makes tree recommendations and tells us about the local trees. The old ones are dying of various diseases, so we have a lot of variety of new ones.I wonder who picks the trees in Israel.
Not something you'd want to climb.
I don't think so Leora, not that I've ever heard of anyway.
Thats a thorny tree and its dangerous hahah...Happy WW!
Well now I'm glad I'm not a tree hugger! OuchieAnd btw, the concert was wonderful. :)
Oh my gosh! That would hurt!! I bet no cats climb this tree. :D
WOW! I have never seen anything like that before...learn something new everyday huh?Thanks for sharingHappy WW!
Hi Robin, I'm just returning your favor of visiting my Ruby (Red) Tuesday post with the red phone booth and my daughter talking there.Happy WW, I'm wondering if monkeys could climb these trees? They are neat! Do they have fruit?I have a parade on my WW (Little Photo Place) today, 13 of us bloggers from different places n the U.S. assembled in that town for Blogstock '08. We build our float and entered the parade as one project...
That's one tree I will hate to crash into!! :P
Yeah, I don't want to give that tree a hug...
Methinks I missed your WW … but I noticed it just now and feel like saying … I don’t think I’d like to hug this particular tree for sure, but it IS intriguing!Hugs and blessings,
Very cool looking!
Wow, very cool shot. I would love to know what these things are!
It looks like a Ceiba speciosa or Silk Floss tree - we have a few at our zoo. The spikes/prickles store water during dry times and butterflys love this trees flowers! and the trees seed pods open up like cotton puffs. Don't go sliding down the trunk of this tree!
Those giant cotton puffs that look like tent caterpillar cocoons are seed pods? I was sure they were full of creepy moths-in-waiting. Cool. Thanks for the info.
