Art Imitating Life
So I was searching for something completely unrelated to trees and this image caught my eye:
I couldn't believe it. These things look similar to a variety of tree I invented for a world in Book Two of my series. In Risktaker, there are trees with curved trunks that I imagined so much like these. The foliage on them is different, but the trunks? Amazing! I guess what they say about there being nothing new under the sun might be true. But I won't give up trying!
Anyway, these trees are located in Poland. If you want to find out more about this odd variety of tree, here's an article from The Daily Mail.
