Logic and sense dictate that to grow a tree, a seed must fall in a suitable place on the ground, water and nutrients are required, and all going well, new growth will result.
Then consider the tree in the photo below. It is growing on a rock, and its roots have wrapped around the rock before finally getting to the ground below. This place gets very hot in summer and very dry. How did it manage to survive long enough in that savage environment?
Something here is miraculous, but also seems, well, just wrong!
Was it just luck perhaps?
But no, not luck, because a little further on, there were more of these amazing plants – seeming to grow in the rock crevices and on cliff sides.
I do not know what species of trees these are. If anyone reading this knows anything about the extraordinary trees of South Africa, you may know?
