Bare (ThursdayTreeLove)

    The Peepal (Ficus religiosa) are almost leafless presently in Pune. However the bark colour and peculiar fluting of the trunk and branch ramification make it easier to identify this tree.

    This is a massive Peepal standing alone in a parking lot. The ramifications are superb...we try to achieve this in our bonsai (and it's quite difficult to do so). 

    This tree just waiting to burst into leaves looked especially attractive to me as I was meeting a few of my batchmates after 40 years!! A unique date (a leap year) added to the surreal quality of our meet up! 

    Its great to meet college friends, relive memories and enjoy each others achievements. 



    I am joining Parul in her ThursdayTreeLove bloghop. Do head over to see fantastic trees from around the world. Better still, join in.

    The trunk is a work of art! And it seems to branch out gracefully. :)

    (I'm sure you had a great time at the get together, too.:))

    What a big Peepal tree and yes, it would have been a lovely day (Additional too) that you got to see your classmates.
    thanks for sharing and I am sure in another 3 months - this tree would be full of leaves.

    Leafless, ALone yet Majestic.
    Good to know you made the leap year date memorable for years to come.

    A magnificent tree. Your photos remind me of tree branches being like branches in human lungs. Trees are the lungs of the earth.
