Filbert Tree

71. Curly

71. Curly

You’d think maybe this Filbert Tree has just had enough. It’s a new tree, just planted last spring. And it’s still hanging on to last year’s leaves after surviving an onslaught of Japanese beetles last summer. Today it is windy, and snowy, and cold, and you’d think maybe this tree decided to just curl up and call it quits?

But no–this is how a Filbert always looks. Like someone just took a curling iron to all of its branches. So there it is. A very curly tree!

    Who’da thunk I would find a tree this misshapen fascinating, but I do, kindred spirits I guess, Thank You.

    That is a curly tree! I have never seen one; just look at the snow clinging to the tiniest branches…

    What a beautiful image, and kind of forlorn, like the tree is curled up against the cold. (I know that feeling!) It is lovely.

    Isn’t it summer YET?

    Amazing what we’re all finding just because we opened our eyes and looked around – love the curly tree shot. I’m a sucker for snow on branches – just makes winter so magical.

    Great take on the theme! It’s made even curlier by the light dusting of snow….just beautiful!

    Fascinating patterns. I like the simplicity of color as well.

    Great shot of the contorted filbert, the snow does add to it’s curliness,(sp?)

    Absolutely GORGEOUS! I love visiting your blog (did I say that already?)!

    I’ve never seen a filbert tree – does it produce filbert nuts?
