Upsidown trees or the way they are meant to grow

Adansonia is a tree genus made up of eight species of large deciduous trees commonly called baobabs – or ’ upside down trees '. It has this name because of its peculiar shape – when it’s bare of leaves, its spreading, twisted branches look like roots spreading out into the air as if the tree had been planted upside down .

A beautiful and stunning tree. I don’t think I’ve ever had the chance to see one in person- hopefully someday! :grin::+1: :deciduous_tree:
