The Foster Parent

Foster P

This week, for Becca’s Sunday Trees, I have a massive Neem (Azadirachta indica) tree in idyllic surroundings.


Isn’t she magnificent? And not just that. Here’s what I missed in the first time I took this aerial shot.


Just a little lower down, nestling within the hardened bark are the tender young leaves of the Peepal (Ficus religiosa) tree. Truly a miracle of nature don’t you think?

Thanks for visiting 🙂

  1. Lovely picture of symbiosis. Neem tree sheltering and probably nourishing the Peepal tree. I can imagine once the Peepal tree grows up it will look at two different trees are grown from one trunk. The nature playing her part as the horticulturist.

  2. Magnificent neem tree…it’s a wonder that peepal tree can grow in the most unexpected places…from cracks on walls..concrete floors…strong survival instincts…hope the neem tree won’t have to pay the price
