Baobabs…

Gokwe North is a pretty hot place and baobabs LOVE that! Below are a few pics of these giants:

Big. Do they have leaves at some time of the year I presume?

ONE tree in the whole of Gokwe (that we saw) had leaves! We coudnt find any reason why it would have but not any of the others – Ill post a pic of it soon! They also have beautiful flower – Ill try to get a pic of them when they come out (need a zoom lens – its far, far up there!) Thanks for the visit and comment

Is it ‘winter’ there?

Yes it is….sort of! It never frosts in Gokwe (well where the baobabs grow because Gokwe area is very large) but yes, the leaves will come out soon
