We went to Venezia today. I’ve been meaning to go for months, but it hasn’t been possible to go until today. What a fantastic place! Venice was very unusual but absolutely magical. I can’t think of many times in my life when I’ve been able to sit at a table with friends and not hear the chatter of the tv or the roar of engines. It was so peaceful. If I could move there, I would in a heartbeat. For now I’m thrilled to be two towns away.
More pictures and words will be up on my Italy blog in the next few days.

Circus Tree: Six individual sycamore trees were shaped, bent, and braided to form this.

Wauwwww

how the hell do you bend and braid a tree

nature posts here ✿

Actually pretty easy. Trees don’t reject tissue from other trees in the same family. You bend the tree to another tree when it is a sapling, scrape off the bark on both trees where they touch, add some damp sphagnum moss around them to keep everything slightly moist and bind them together. 
Then wait a few years- The trees will have grown together. 

You can use a similar technique to graft a lemon branch or a lime branch or even both- onto an orange tree and have one tree that has all three fruits.

I think instead of “we are all the same! Equality for all!” we should say “equal but different.” Most women are not capable of the same exact things a man is. But neither is man capable of some of the things a woman can do. Can genders overlap in areas of work and talent? Of course! But we are different and that is ok. I think part of the problem is that we all keep listening to the people who try to convince us that we are all the same. I took so long to jump on board with feminism because everyone keeps screaming about how I can do everything a man can… But I can’t. And I don’t want to, and that’s not a bad thing. I just want girls and women to feel comfortable and be respected.
