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:

Yeah, that and: Ariel is the daughter of Triton, son of Poseidon, brother of Zeus, who is the father of Hercules. So yeah technically, they are literal cousins. Cool, isn’t it?

HOLY

Hahahaha I love it.

A Stream of Thoughts 2: Self Love

Self love

How does one stop being so hard on oneself?

I’ve been practicing what I consider to be self love:

Affirmations. Self care. Hair cuts. Work outs.

Treating yourself to something nice

A long shower

A soak in the tub

Some Chocolate

That necklace you’ve been wanting

I know the answers, I do them often

And still I can’t seem to be gentle

My ego compares itself to others

My mind berates me

Why is it taking so long?

To learn to love me.

And how can I fall in love with myself

If no one else can fall in love with me?

I don’t want to wait as long as this is taking

To experience a love connection again.
