Which way to grow?

 

A tree in Bodnant Gardens that seems to have difficulty in deciding!  As for Dire Straits - they have no difficulty! Mark Knopfler is superb, of course - but drummer Pick Withers deserves a lot of credit.

What beautiful bark!
Love that song!
Tom Wilson: Lovely isn't it? And the song is one of the all time greats smile
it may be confused Tom... but it is still a beautiful tree...

thanks for the 70's concert....petersmile
Tom Wilson: It certainly is - glad you liked the video.

Fascinating tree, Tom.

I am a BIG fan of Dire Straits!
Tom Wilson: Certainly is, Ray - as for DS, I think this is not only one of their greatest, but one of THE greatest from any band!
what a tree knot
Tom Wilson: Seems to have been a bit confused over the years!

Chronic indecision in action I think Tom
Tom Wilson: Makes one wonder how it happened!

I wonder if it had been encouraged to twist like this
Tom Wilson: I suspect it was entirely natural, Lisl - there was no trace of it being managed.
Quite an amazing tree Tom! Thank you for the Dire Straits song.
Tom Wilson: A pleasure, Richard.
Every which way but loose? smile
Tom Wilson: Perhaps it has been a bit too loose!
Yes there does seem to be some confusion here Tom. I like the processing
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Janet
Certainly a weird sort of tree. I always regret never going to a Dire Straits concert, at the time they were regularly touring we had two young children and no major concert halls or nearby parents to look after the children near us.
Tom Wilson: I came to them rather late, Brian - well after their peak - but they could certainly move along!

A very strange bark sported by the wayward tree - surreal, to say the least. But it makes a good pic. Enjoyed the sultans.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Louis - yes, DS could certainly move along!

A symbol of confusion - but there must be an appearance of order. I like the music!
Tom Wilson: It's really a puzzle as to how it got that way!
