Not a sewing post

So I’ve always been fascinated by tree roots. It’s drives Gareth potty becuase whenever we go for a walk I make him stop and look at tree roots.

But even he was impressed by this one…

It’s where the outdoor market is in oxford. The poor tree was obviously constricted by a much smaller enclosure until recently.

What strikes me is how much this reminds me of a tight circle of Celtic knotwork, you can see how nature provides the inspiration for these things

  1. Oh, that poor thing! I hope it manages to spread it’s roots out properly and doesn’t tip right over. It really does look like Celtic knotwork! I wonder if it could be worked into an emblem of some kind…

  2. Poor thing, indeed – very thoroughly pot-bound!

  3. Very Cool!
