Tamarind forest

Post  Guest on Sat Apr 02, 2011 2:02 pm

Hi IBC.

I got a work (project) in a far far away place where internet is not available, so can't post more often. but I can browse IBC in my mobile phone when I got the right spot.

...But, as a consolation in exchange for the high tech world I got new inspiration from the rural/country side scenes on my way to work.
...In a vast rice field, I saw an "islet" of tamarind trees where the farmers humble house is sheltered by trees.
...A peaceful, tranquil place I wanted to re-create in a pot... I did over the weekend.



regards,
jun rendeer

Very nice. Personally, I could do without the hut, but that's 100% a matter of taste. It is, at least, in scale.

Your pot needs cleaning -- badly.

Nice forest, I to could have done without the hut at first. But after looking at the picture for a while I think it is just because its such a shiney new little hut. Once it has weathered a bit and lost its shine it will not stick out so much. So with all that said I like the hut now, well done on the creation.

Thank you Fez.

It's a newly constructed bamboo hut., after a few days in the sun and rain (watering) it will lost it's shine...and hopefully it will blend in.

Storm,

Thanks!.

John,

Thanks!
Yes John. I got lots of tamarind seedlings and cuttings. but the biggest tree, I bought it to complete the composition for trunk size variation.

Tamarind (Tamarindus indica) and rain tree (Albizia saman) both belongs to the pea family...so they are distant relatives. but rain tree is classified as flowering tree while tamarind is a fruiting tree.

I like your forest scene Jun. I can imagine the elephant chasing the tiger out of the bamboo grove. Very Happy
Do you have tigers and elephants in the Phillipines?

Thanks Todd!
.....Yes. Inside the zoos. Very Happy Tigers and and elephant are not endemic to the Philippines and if they were they'll be gone by now.
...Our wild life is badly degraded. We belong to the fastest degrading forest in the world, with 480 hectares of secondary forest destroyed everyday without replacement, only 3% of the original rainforest remains...we are just learning slowly with the current logging ban. Hope fully it will help.

Thank you for explaining, Jun. I guess it would be a long way to swim to one of the islands for either beast.
Overpopulation; too many people in this world. The Premna moratorium only scratches the surface. Sad

...The world is still too vast for people to settle in, Forest lands are fertile too, people are just lazy to do reforestration works...d**n my plywoods and other wood products I need at work are too expensive nowadays! almost double in price in less than 4 years...good for mother nature bad news for the clients...hehehe. I'm just the middleman.

What ground cover are you using on the right side, just normal clovers?
