frankincense tree

    Newer Older

    Another glorious Socotri endemic specimen is the frankincense tree. Here deeply rooted on the edge of a rock. Highly sought for its aromatic resin, the frankincense was a source of huge wealth for South Arabian kingdoms since Ancient history.

      That's something else!

      If someone did a bonsai tree like that people would say it was un-natural.
