That tree

 
I mentioned the great fir in our garden, and I wanted to show it – and its little quirk…

It’s big. As you could see in the Autumn splashes post, it’s about a couple of metres taller than *anything* else in the area, but that’s not the funniest thing about it…

 

 
You see how there appears to be another fir sticking up behind the big one in the middle of this picture? Just the tip peeking up? It’s not…

 

 
… it’s actually growing from the big one! Follow the ‘other’ tree’s trunk down, and you’ll see that it emerges, in fact, from a branch of the big one. It’s like a little Christmas tree, growing there!

I wonder if I could get the neighbours to put lights up there this year…
