I'm reading "Le Petit Prince" (The Little Prince) for my French class. As I was leaving class today my teacher said "you guys are gonna get to learn about these wonderful baobab trees in the story!" Immediately a light bulb went on in my head and I had to stay and talk to her because it just so happens that I'm currently working on a painting of a baobab flower (they're on the trees) and have been for some time. She asked me how I knew about them (because not many people do, I think) and I told her I saw them on Planet Earth and the beauty that the flower held amazed me. It was just funny that she mentioned baobab trees and that they're in The Little Prince.
Baobab trees are in Madagascar and they're one of the most unique and peculiar trees I've ever seen.
They don't all look the same:
