National Geographic, You Blow My Mind!

Camel Thorn Trees in Namibia photographed (yes photographed — look closely this is not a painting — but a photo) are blowing my mind.  Where do these national geographic people get so much talent?  The orange background is actually a soaring dune, tinted by the morning sun.  The camel thorn trees in Namib-Naukluft Park are in the foreground.

I just had to share this — wow.

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.

    Acacia erioloba, the seeds can be roasted and used as a substitute for coffee. Here’s a fascinating article on a mutualistic relationship shared between Acacia species and ants. http://spectregroup.wordpress.com/2010/01/08/acacia-self-defense/
