Tale of Twists

True meaning of life is to plant trees, under whose shade you do not expect to sit! – Nelson Henderson

Observe the branches, they appear twisted as well.

I saw this tree on a weekend when I went to buy Indian groceries with my husband. Initially the bright shade of green colour attracted me, but when I got closer the curly leaves simply was mesmerising. I went round and round the tree to see if every leaf was curled, took some photos and googled up to find more about the tree. The closest match I found referred to curly willow. The Curly Willow is known by many names, from corkscrew willow to twisted willow to snake willow, but its unique branching formation is very aristic and has gained popularity.

Google image for matching – reminds me of DNA match report from movies 😉

Seeing this tree made me remember the saying beauty lies in the eyes of a beholder. This tree with twisted branches and curled up leaves appeared beautiful and elegant to me.

    1. I recently installed a app called LeafSnap which identifies the trees based on leaf, fruit, flowers, bark etc. Quite handy for tree lovers like us. Hope you are doing well Archana. 🙂


    1. Indeed Shilpa. Every tree has some amazing features which appeal our eyes. Guess human beings are the same – each one of us are unique and full of potential. Glad you visit my posts regularly and provide your views – a great encouragement for me! 🙂
