    What can I say? I love almost all trees, but especially unusual fat trees like this Toborochi Tree from Bolivia. I also love the Baobab trees of Madagascar. I may like to eat black walnuts, but I don't want the tree anywhere near my garden, with its killer juglone acid (most disliked by apple trees, tomatoes and white birch trees...all of which I like.)

    Toborochi tree! Nature Bolivia Photography Collection (10 Pictures). The toborochi tree (Ceiba speciosa) looks pregnant! In Bolivia, legends say a beautiful goddess hid inside the tree to give birth so the forces of evil wouldn't find her and kill her and her baby. She comes out only in the form of the tree's beautiful pink flowers which attract her mate, the hummingbird god.

Oh, how I do love larches...a deciduous evergreen that turns bright gold and looses it needles in the fall!

I know most everyone these days dislikes winter, but for me it has always been the most magical time of the year. You can hear, see, smell, and taste more in the crisp winter air; also, I love coming inside from the cold to warm up.
