Fleur-Ange and the Fig

Fleur-Ange and the Fig
Originally uploaded by Ontario Wanderer

The Bearded Fig Tree (Ficus citrifolia) sends down hanging roots that attach themselves to the ground and grow in diameter. These trees can grow very large as one can see by the size of Fleur-Ange in the photo. She was doing some sketching and other art work in the shade of this tree. Yes, that is all one tree.

It was really nice to find this park and spend a couple of hours away from the noise and hustle of Havana.
