Sunset at the Tree of Life in Bahrain -The Tree of Life is a 400-year-old mesquite tree in Bahrain that is considered a natural wonder. This unique tree stands alone in the desert about two kilometers from the Jebel Dukhan, the highest point in Bahrain. The source of water for this tree remains a mystery because it stands in a place completely free of water.
Also known as the "tree of life", Baobab trees, found in Africa and India, can live for several thousand years. They have little wood fiber, but can store large quantities of water.
The tree of love, also called tree of life, is in fact the union of two different trees, the fig and Hasina. You must know that the fig tree is a strangler fig tree: a tree that had a lot of water tends to be a parasite on other plants close to him. Usually the fig kills the host tree, but wonderful thing in this case the two trees live in perfect harmony.
The Tree Of Life, Bahrain. Oh to such that I could be a lone tree thriving in desert as this does!
Tree of Life (Arabic: شجرة الحياة; transliterated: Shajarat al-Hayah) is a 400-year old mesquite tree in Bahrain which is considered a natural wonder. This unique tree stands alone in the desert about 1.2 miles (two kilometers) from the Jebel Dukhan. The source of water for this tree still remains a mystery. Rumor is that this was the Garden of Eden.
Two long tree roots embrace - two lovers entwined. Drawn by the embrace - yet unable to release one another. Growing together with passion that almost strangles - ultimately supports a stronger union. Both roots searching so deeply - they cross and twist and thread and bore and constrict. Veer apart and back together. A dance of life.
