While at my mom’s for Thanksgiving, several of us went outside to check on the tree that ate the fence. Or I guess it is the tree that is eating the fence because munch munch is still ongoing.
This tree is one hell of a survivor! It has split in two near the ground, and both trunks are still alive. It also has a branch growing from the middle of the split trunks. WOW – that’s some kind of will to survive.
Apparently the tree thinks the fence is in its way. And since the fence doesn’t seem to be moving, the tree is just growing around it. This view reminds me of “Little Shop of Horrors” and the plant named Audrey II.
And because the tree has a big mouthful of fence on one side, it has started eating the fence on the other side. Hey, no judging the tree; don’t you take second bites when something is so tasty?
