Christmas Tree - Boojum Tree


This Christmas Tree at the Desert Botanical Gardens looks very festive compared the the Boojum Tree right behind it.

Nice contrasts, set off by the perfect sky behind.

Your photos of the Botanical Garden are always wonderful. Very interesting and humorous contrast.

This boojum tree is fascinating isn't it!

"In the midst of the word he was trying to say,
In the midst of his laughter and glee,
He had softly and suddenly vanished away---
For the Snark was a Boojum, you see."
Final verse for “The Hunting of the Snark” Lewis Carroll 1874

I have never seen a 'Boojum tree' Sharon so of course I had to Google it, would love to see it when it's covered in yellow flowers.

Ya, but with a few colorful ornaments and wrap, she'd be in business. Hohoho!

Great composition and a cool contrast between the cactusy plant and the Xmas tree! The red balls set everything else off perfectly!

The boojum tree would not make a very good Christmas tree.

The Boojum Tree looks interesting though. Happy new year to you!

Nice contrast between these two trees. The Boojum Tree looks like it might be feeling left out!

The Boojum tree looks like it could be a Charlie Brown tree!

Love the Boojum trees at the garden. They are so odd.

Jack said...

Who names a tree a "boojum tree"? Really! Might as well call it a gobsmacker tree.

I've never heard of the Boojum Tree before so I did a search and... what an amazing plant it is!
