This curious creation can be seen in the Cornell Plantations Arboretum in Ithaca, NY. Home, sweet, home. Gorges. Just gorgeous. I like the stringy spaghetti-like things hanging from this tree, and the wide flat leaves that remind me of grape leaves...which, incidentally, are one of my favorite things to eat from the local Mediterranean deli (stuffed, that is). SOOOO good.
This is a personable tree, don't you think? It looks clumsy and a little confused or sad, but funny. Dr. Seuss would probably approve. Definitely.
