Screaming Tree

It's been a while since I had a simulacrum on the Poor Mouth. Time to rectify such gross negligence.

Last week the Daily Mail published the above photo alongside a print of Edvard Munch's famous work "The Scream" claiming that the former was a dead ringer for the latter.

While I would not say there is much of a likeness it is an impressive tre indeed.

The tree is a 400 year-old oak that can be found at the Marks Hall Arboretum in Coggeshall in Essex. It is less than 40 miles away so I feel a day out coming!

I wouldn't say it's exactly a dead ringer for The Scream but it does remind one of it.

I'n thinking more of one of the "Hallowe'en" horror movies or something. Nice tree!

It's definitely one I would have in my garden if it were big enough. I'm glad you liked it even if it is pretty scary!

Well, at least they didn't say it looked just like Jesus.

Ouch, quite a depressing sight. Calls for a few drinks while contemplating.

Hmm... then it will be a good thing to have it in a pub, I guess.

Haha that's true Susan!

Ah it would be great in a pub. It would scare many people sober... and then they can get drunk again!

Oh, I think it's wonderful. I'd like it right outside my window, please!

Me too SE. If myself nd the not wife had had children it would be directly outside their window!

jams o donnell said...
