     Brain Pickings is one of my favorite resources for good books and ideas. Today’s post shares the wonderful world of trees that develop in weird ways, responsible only to their individual nature and their local environments. When I travel I always seek out trees with strange and unusual shapes and patterns of growth. Enjoy!

“From the cocoa tree that gives us chocolate to the Philippines’ rainbow tree, a global tour of rooted marvels.”
