Oh wow, Jose. That is a stunning and beautiful tree. I did not expect to see it when I opened the poll, and my jaw dropped when I saw it.  Gorgeous. What a beautiful country you live in!

Thanks, Love.

My country has very many beautiful things: beaches, mountains, rivers, lakes, deserts,  jungles, and  impressive vegetation.
The naturals symbols--Tree, Araguaney; Flower, Orquideas; and Bird, Turpial--are a demonstration of our beautiful country.

I hope someday you will visit Venezuela. I will welcome you with open arms.

!!!VIVA SEED!!!
