Tree Inspired

Trees are no stranger to this blog. I’ve chatted about a spruce planted during my 4-H days. I’ve mentioned bald cypress and their tricks with needles that make a Northerner think they’ve died.

And this year I’ve highlighted the neighborhood apple tree from twig, to bud, to bloom to fruit. I’ve even mentioned roots more than once – in reference to the need for a water supply in either the form of a refreshing rain or help from humans.

This takes roots to an entirely new level. They’re exposed. Naked. Embarrassed?

I’m thinking this is great inspiration for the engineers who create playground climbing structures.

Apples are in season. Visit an infant orchard in Hiding Places.
