The Olive Lizard



This is an even stranger olive tree than yesterday's bird as you see by its aerial roots. And can you spy the carved lizard? Again, it's part of the tree and is dead centre in the photograph. In the background, yachts in the harbour of Monaco.

To see another carved tree - a manatee, no less - take a look at Fort Lauderdale Daily Photo

This is really cool! Centenary odd olive trees became very fashionable here some years ago.

I love the carvings in the wood. I have one on my site. If you have a chance, check it out: Fort Lauderdale Daily Photo. http://ftldp.blogspot.com

Nice job spotting this unique feature. Even more amazing is the way this old tree is supported above the pot on those roots!
