I am now in seventh heaven and I want to tell you why. You will remember Owen's blog - Magic Lantern Show which posted a photograph of a tree eating a sign and I responded by putting up pictures and details of the 'Bicycle-eating Tree'. I suggested that the trees' appetite for consuming foreign objects might be a common occurence. It is worse than I thought - it now seems that trees across the planet are munching their way through all sorts of things and . . . gravestones are now on the menu!
With such a huge amount of interest in the subject, I decided to do some more research and, in doing so, I came across a gallery of more than 130 photographs of trees eating things. This eye-popping show can be viewed by clicking HERE. Thanks to the generosity of two of the photographers, who have signed up to Creative Commons, I can reproduce two of the amazing pictures in this post. Enjoy!
