Becky’s Square Photo Challenge July: Square Tree
The Bottle Tree, Brachychiton rupestris, commonly known as the narrow-leaved bottle tree or Queensland bottle tree, is a tree in the family Malvaceae native to Queensland. The shape is swelling due to the water held in its trunk.
Your tree song for today
In Grafton, my nearest town, is an avenue of Bottle Trees in Robinson St
Some are quite round
The bark and texture is amazing
Some have very different shapes
and some are always looking at you
A Bottle Tree is just the right tree to post for sharing a bottle or two celebrating a birthday don’t you think?
