This is the Magnolia tree that was transformed into a giant squid by sisters Jill Watt and Lorna using over four miles of yarn. Wait -- do trees even like playing dress up? Did Jill and Lorna at least ask it first? Because the last humanity needs right now is a battle with the Ents because these two are out there forcing trees into sweaters.
Jill reports that it took 20 hours on a sweater machine to make enough to cover the tree and that it took them 14 hours to install it, in 91°F weather!
Jesus -- adding a sweater to a tree in 91°F weather?! The Ents are totally gonna be coming for us now. And you know what? I'm going to fight on their side. "You're just hoping they win and you can score a living treehouse, aren't you?" Heck yeah! Plus I'm tired of humanity anyways. Give the trees a chance, that's my motto. "Whatever happened to, 'Screw this, I'm getting drunk?'" Ahahahhahaha, you got me.
Keep going for several more shots.
Thanks to Mary B, who once knit a pair of gloves for a maple tree but squirrels stole them.
