This is awesome. I've walked past this tree daily for around a year now, and today it does this. It literally stopped me in my tracks, and I had to take a picture.
Sure, this weird little tree is just some ornamental that someone planted in their front yard. I'm sure there are people all over the world who will look at it and say “ah yes, that's a insert Linnaean name here, quite common in insert part of the world here.
But to me it looks like something that belongs in a coral reef, not someone's front lawn.
Nature is amazing. Infinite variety, even in a downtown setting.
