I Want My Wall Here


I never tire of the eccentricities of Egyptian construction. Someone nearby wanted a wall around his garden but didn't want to lose a tree, so the builders incorporated the tree into the garden wall. As I recall, trees tend to grow so eventually the wall will fall, but for now it's sort of surreal and fun.

I think it's awesome!

Heck, if somebody built this in one of Seattle's posh neighborhoods, they'd call it "art" and include it on the tours!

at somebody's house in Ridgecrest CA, there's a tree growing out of an old rusted car. which came first... the chicken or the egg, the tree or the wall, the rusted car or the tree?

It's much better than just leaving the bricks in a pile somewhere. This shows some effort, some desire for a better place....

I'd like to see a picture of that very wall vs. tree for 5 years and watch this evolve!
