Big Bad Bike and a Big Bad Tree.

We all know what the bike is but do you know about the tree?

It is a Moreton Fig that was planted in Santa Barbara Ca in 1876.

Now it is the biggest one of its kind in the entire USA.

I am sure that just makes your day huh?

Actually it is a really cool tree. It reminds me of the big Banyan tree in Lahina on the island of Maui.

Amazing what one can learn on this forum.

We have a huge Banyan tree over here on the Big Island that dates back to 1892. Really interesting trees...
I recall reading about the extremely large Banyan Trees way up on Mauna Kea that would often have thousands of tiny seedlings which would open in Springtime into Beautiful (Rapid) Red Flowers. :cool:

Blazing orange flowers are pretty too... but cant recall ever seeing any black or grey flowers??????

Guess mother nature knows best. Lol.

Cool photo of the Fig tree. I lived about 3 blocks from there towards the ocean back in 1972. The tree hasn't grown much since then (LOL).
