    Socotra, Yemen Widely agreed as the most bizarre and alien place on earth, Socotra is a small archipelago of four islands in the Indian Ocean. The islands are very isolated and through the process of speciation, a third of its plant life is found nowhere else on the planet. The most striking of these plants is the Dragon’s Blood Tree, a sculpted and almost sinister looking tree that commands your attention

    Socotra Island, Indian Ocean, is an island 250 miles off the coast of Yemen. The largest of the four-island Socotra Archipelago, the island has about 250 species of plants that are not found anywhere else in the world. This includes the canopy-topped dragon's blood tree, which has blood-red resin that runs down if the trunk is pierced, and the desert rose, which can grow to 10 feet with a bulbous trunk that swells with water absorbed in anticipation of dry weather.(Photo: Courtesy USAHITMAN)

Dragon's Blood tree "Dracaena cinnabari" The crown of the tree sees multiple branches parting, but after that each branch divides along binary lines, though the frequency of this division is governed by some rule that ensures there is enough surface area for all branches to get sunlight.

Neat tree

A wonderful picture to illustrate faith formation...the bigger, the deeper, the stronger the roots, the more foliage and fruit the tree will bear.
