Umbrella thorn trees

Umbrella thorn trees

We, as children, always called these trees  ‘umbrellas trees’, little did I know they are called Umbrella Thorn … as we were told on our game drives around Leopard Mountain.

Naturally, they had to be photographed … they reminded me so much of the Rhodesian bushveld … it reminded me of ‘home’ !!  This one is a beauty …

…. a few together ..

… little white flowers at it’s base  ..

… at a Y ‘junction’..

.. in twilight ..

…. green and lush after welcoming rains to the region ..

…  silhouetted against the evening sky …

… and scattered amongst other trees …
