Festival 54: The Wonder and Magic of Trees
Silvia at Windywillow has prepared a lavishly illustrated edition of the Festival of the Trees, featuring photos from the linked posts and commentary from her animated tree-sprite alter ego. Many of the contributors really got into the spirit of the theme, with posts about unusual and charismatic trees and forests, while others pondered more specific mysteries such as fig pollination, the cause of bent and leaning trees, and how insects avoid getting trapped in amber. And don’t miss the couple who make chairs and sculptures out of living trees! Go visit.
