This wonderful example was caught by my ex colleague and generally awesome individual, James Wetherall, owner, director and big cheese of the excellent Wetherall’s.
I’m not sure where it was taken in Amsterdam and I have a sneaking suspicion it is meant to be there, but it is such a good tree I couldn’t pass the opportunity by to post it.
Not an entreaty to undertake a decidedly odd and ultimately fruitless task (pun not intended), but a sighting of some amazing examples in Poland.
Provided by the most excellent Enda, whose company I was privileged to keep one evening in Galway along with my brother, Andrew, sister in law Georganne and Enda’s girlfriend.
He says: “you will notice the chimney tower, but if you zoom into the rooftops of the abandoned factory buildings you can see bloody forests growing on some! its a surreal sight.”
A big “thank you” to Enda and I wish him the best of success with his site via the pages of this blog 🙂
I think this is from Tenerife; it may be a balcony tree, but I’ll allow it as it is such a great example and extending the scope of the site to farther afield is always a good thing I feel.
With thanks to the excellent Wendy McGurren!
So my excellent colleague, Christine, visited the beautiful Rothesay recently and captured this lovely tree atop a church steeple. I visited Rothesay something like 30 years ago with my mum and dad in our little sailing boat as part of a 2 week stint around the highlands. This, along with a cruise in the same boat the year after was probably the best time I ever had in my life 🙂
Chris tells me the church is for sale.
