I happened up this list of 10 of the world’s most incredible trees from Neatorama, and it really does amaze.
The one pictured above, for example, was created (sculpted?!) by bean farmer Axel Erlandson. He made many similar creations, which he termed “Circus Trees.” According to Neatorama, “Erlandson was very secretive and refused to reveal his methods on how to grow the Circus Trees (he even carried out his graftings behind screens to protect against spies!) and carried the secrets to his grave.”
And in the follies, this Ginger Fried Rice from Smitten Kitchen is, I think, the perfect one bowl meal. Enough said.
