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

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.Frankentrees.

A lovely gift from someone who knows me very well: seed storage envelopes! 

Organisational variables include:

  • Frø art / Frösort = Seed Species
  • Plante sort / Växsort = Plant Variety
  • Farve / Färg = Colour
  • Frø høstet / Frö skördat = Seeds harvested
  • Indsamlet af / Samlats av =  Collected by
  • Noter / Anteckningar = Notes

These particular ones are in Danish and Swedish, respectively, but there are also English versions available online:

(USA)  

(UK)

For larger seed, there are tubes:

By the way, for those of you who are really in to “thingsfittingperfectlyintothings​” and “thingsorganizedneatly​”-type imagery, I’ve been tagging the many ways in which people store seeds as #organisation. Check it out if you are looking for inspiration on how to organise your seeds!
