An ant probably thinks the flower is a tree!

I probably should have shared these thoughts right at the start of the challenge, but learning from previous Square months there is always at least one fabulous person who joins us in the final week, so hopefully these thoughts will still be useful!

When I was preparing my Squares this month, MrB and I had a discussion about what is a tree. Wikipedia states that ‘In botany, a tree is a perennial plant with an elongated stem, or trunk, supporting branches and leaves in most species.’ Whereas Collins says ‘any large woody perennial plant with a distinct trunk giving rise to branches and leaves at some distance from the ground’. Which raises the question in my mind at least, when does a young tree become a tree?!

If you are one of those fabulous persons who have yet to square a tree you have until Saturday to create your square post with the tag #TreeSquare, and don’t forget to include a pingback to any of my daily square posts in July. The only absolute rule though for joining in with Squares is that your photograph must be square in shape!

    1. hee hee, my scheduled posts do get stuck in my head!

      I am sure yours are all trees. Be there very soon. Currently 48hrs behind squares after two crazy work days. Thoroughly enjoying though catching up with comments this evening, and hopefully in half hour or so with all the squares


  1. Interesting isn’t it. I did wonder about mine a couple of times.Is holly a tree? Well, it often gets called a tree and it seems that it depends on how you present it not on its “being” – present it as a tree or as a bush.
    Anyway, today I have the tiniest bits of big trees and, more importantly, I’m presenting them as a square:
