Simulacrum corner

As seen on a Black Poplar at the Chase Nature reserve, Hornchurch (or is it over the Dagenham border?). Oh and a thank you to my 30,000th visitor

Tree faces always scare the crap out of me. Remember the animated Disney version of Pocohontas? Thanks to the talking Willow tree, it was more like a horror movie to me.

I can make out a haggish old woman with long hair descending down both sides. This tree probably comes alive and eats wayward children at night too.

Are there any carnivorous plants by you? We have the savage pitcher plant and sundews although I have never seen sundew. Badderwort is an aquatic carnivourous plant so it won't do much in photos.

I'm noit aware of any carniverous plants near us. Sadly there is little that is in its opriginal state around our parts.. Even the countryside has been farmed fir centuries (millennia in some places).

Aain it sounds like you ahve some great things to see Beakerkin.

Scary but pretty good eh Ewbl?. This one is quite striking don't you think? Sadly it would go hubngty if it wanted kids..plenty of bunnies and horses around though!
