Fir Trees and Bananas

Think of  fir trees and probably like me imagine the cold temperate forests of Northern Europe or Canada. You probably don’t imagine a hot equatorial climate. Yet here on the western shores of Lake Victoria there are plantations of fir trees alongside banana trees. Both seem to grow equally well.  An incongruity, a juxtaposition of unlikely neighbours.
