Circus Tree: Six individual sycamore trees were shaped, bent, and braided to form this.

how the hell do you bend and braid a tree

Actually pretty easy. Trees don’t reject tissue from other trees in the same family. You bend the tree to another tree when it is a sapling, scrape off the bark on both trees where they touch, add some damp sphagnum moss around them to keep everything slightly moist and bind them together. Then wait a few years- The trees will have grown together. You can use a similar technique to graft a lemon branch or a lime branch or even both- onto an orange tree and have one tree that has all three fruits.Frankentrees.

As a biologist I can clearly state that plants are fucking weird and you should probably be slightly afraid of them.

On that note! At the university (UBC) located in town, the Agriculture students were told by their teacher that a tree flipped upside down would die. So they took an excavator and flipped the tree upside down. And it’s still growing. But the branches are now the roots, and the roots are now these super gnarly looking branches. Be afraid.

But Vi, how can you mention that and NOT post a picture? D:

I am both amazed and horrified of nature as we all should be

I tell Lachlan that we can’t go outside because it’s dark and scary outside.

He immediately asked with a concerned face if it was a bug.

I wish I was young enough that my only fear was a bug.

Well that’s adorable.

When did you go back to work after your little one was born? Are you working full time or part time? How are you managing?

This week, I have been feeling guilty as hell. I work about 42 hours a week and I feel like every day I get back from work I have missed something. At the same time, I could not handle not working for 12 months I truly enjoy it, it is great for my mental state. Constant battle between keeping the job I enjoy so much or quitting to spend every minute of the day with my son.

I went back to work at 8 months out of necessity. I needed to start making money to get out of a toxic living space.
