Travel theme: trees

cashew nut tree. The ‘fruit’ part under the nut is poisonous so they have to be picked by hand. No wonder cashew nuts are so expensive!

did you know star fruit grow on trees?

Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening
By Robert Frost
Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.

My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.

He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound’s the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.

The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

  1. In my country, Vietnam, “cashew nut” is called “trái điều”, “star fruit” is “khế ngọt” ( “my homeland is star fruit, let me take it every day” – Poem of Đỗ Trung Quân – Quê Hương). Cannon ball tree mean “No worry”. 🙂 I love all of them.

  2. The diversity of trees on our planet never cease to amaze me ☺

  3. Wonderful tree images. I love cashew nuts, but have never seen how they look on the tree. very interesting. 🙂 Love the Robert Frost poem and your lovely snowy tree scenes. 🙂
