The monster

in #nature5 months ago


I took these pictures at the beginning of the year when I was going to do a huge post about this tree, telling you, revealing to you the truths about it.
Today, however, I feel that even just these three pictures clearly show what I want to say.


A monster. This Asian tree is invasive and very aggressive, the moment some of its branches are cut, it immediately produces new ones - you see all these strange and unnaturally sticking up branches. So fast do these new branches grow that one is afraid to go under this tree - perhaps its branches will wrap around him like the Gorgon Medusa and suffocate him in revenge for the cut branches.
This is really creepy.


And I really had a psychological barrier to walking past it for a certain period of time. 😐

Hive.jpgSoul's Detour is a project started by me years ago when I had a blog about historical and not so popular tourist destinations in Eastern Belgium, West Germany and Luxembourg. Nowadays, this blog no longer exists, but I'm still here - passionate about architecture, art and mysteries and eager to share my discoveries and point of view with you.

Perhaps, similar to the "Kukeri", it chases away the evil spirits? :D


It is an evil spirit itself in my opinion, brrr, terrible thing 😔😃

If you arrest a mime...
Do you have to tell them they have the right to remain silent?

Why can’t you trust an atom?
Because they make up literally everything.

Bang, I did it again... I just rehived your post!
Week 153 of my contest just can now check the winners of the previous week!

What kind of tree is it and how did it come to be in your area?

Oh, I forgot to mention it, sorry 😊 It's because I've already wrote about it before.
It's the Paulownia tree. And I read that it was imported to other parts of the world as early as the 19th century.

I'll have to check that out and see what it's benefits in natural habitat are and how it may destroy in areas it is not meant to be in. 😁
