Or if you’d rather: Trees, Up Close and Personal . . .
I’ve featured this tree before but it seemed an apt start. Definitely a Man-Tree
Is this a surprised face? Oh! Or is it something more personal?
I know that it’s ivy but a slight turn of the eye and I see a man, his limbs become serpents, his naked torso, stretching and contorting,
And from the same pit of imagination . . . is that a snake climbing the tree?
You’ve heard the expression, ‘to lean over backwards’? Well, apparently even trees do it.
Then again, some trees are just too laid-back. It obviously found the right angled bank for the perfect recline
There once was a pair of thwarted lovers . . . and from their grave grew a tree. And now they’re getting divorced.
While this tree would be falling apart were it not for the ivy that binds it
Here’s another tree I’ve featured before, but not from this angle. Can you see the tree-hugger here?
You know why the oak is likened to the stag? Here’s why. Perfect antlers.
Again, I have featured this tree before but it’s such a classic.
The Blue Witch, slyly hatching some devilish scheme. (And that cross in the background is not of my doing!)
And now the witch is grinning, probably in glee at the human it’s captured (see the head beneath her chin?)
And in Loony Tunes style: That’s all for now, folks.
