45 Seconds of Rosewood Zen

Rosewood 07

Buenos Aires 061

This mental health break courtesy of these beautifully sculpted Rosewoods, or Tipuana Tipu, that tower over the Botanical Garden in Buenos Aires. They can be seen in other parts of the city, where they’re used to provide much needed shade, but these were by far the most striking.

Native to South America, they can grow up to 30 meters/100 feet tall with a canopy stretching to 20 meters, or 60 feet across. I’m not sure how high and wide these went but that limit was being challenged.

When viewed from below, the twists and turns of the branches resemble a river and its tributaries. Like a map in the sky. Enjoy.

    Very beautiful, and very different to the gum trees that I love to gaze at here in Australia. These are so GREEN… well worth clicking to see the full photo too. Lovely.
