Our Brazilian trees get their home in a magical part of the northern Amazon rain forest.
Why two? Ebru received them free of charge during her visit to the botanical garden in Manaus. So why not??
Around the town of Presidente Figueiredo there are countless waterfalls (locally known as cachoeiras), one more beautiful than the next, hidden in silent little nooks of the jungle, most of them only reachable on foot by narrow paths.
One particularly beautiful waterfall is the Cachoeira Pedra Furada.
The ceiling of this waterfall is a large, flat rock, which forms a cave, in which you can swim and observe the curtain of water falling from behind. However, some unique erosion processes have bored holes into this rock, through which water now pours like big overhead shower-nozzles.
During a wonderful day of swimming relaxing in this secluded little shrine, we planted the two Brazilian palm trees. We found them a home next to a large tree right at the entrance way coming in from the jungle.
No doubt they will be more than happy out here in this little paradise.
THAT’S TWENTY TREES IN THE GROUND, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN!
GROW LITTLE ONES, GROW!!!
