( a really cool friend of mine)this was my
favorite tree out of all the trees she wrote about. It
resembles the skeleton of a cacti…

#9. Circus Trees
As a hobby, bean farmer
Axel Erlandson [wiki] shaped trees – he pruned,
bent, and grafted trees into fantastic shapes
and called them “Circus Trees.” For example,
to make this “Basket Tree” arborsculpture,
Erlandson planted six sycamore trees in a
circle and then grafted them together to form
the diamond patterns.
I am inspired! Torchin’ Tuesday is looking like a whole new day!
