I took the day off work (to go to the Doctors and the hairdressers. And because I could) and saw this horrific diseased (I’m guessing) plant on my way back home.
Edit: one of my many superheroesque friends, in this case Eco Ray, has pointed out that this is a natural discolouration on a willow tree. I maintain that a natural discolouration that looks like blood filled blisters is CREEPY. But I am glad the tree is healthy.

* Incidentally, the play was wonderful. Measure for Measure. I auditioned but didn’t get a part (sigh) and while I think, naturally, it would have been better if I’d been in it, I still thought it was very well done and the girl in the role I had coveted? she did admirably. SIGH. It’s so hard to be bitter sometimes.
