Sunday Trees – 238

These pictures are from Mendenhall Gardens in Juneau, Alaska in 2006. The garden is famous for taking the trunks and root balls of knocked over trees from a landslide and planting them upside down. They then become galleries for all kinds of flower arrangements.

  1. beautiful shots and turning stumps upside down is a great idea! I wonder if their stability gets compromised over time? They probably keep an eye on that.

    1. I’m sure they keep an eye on them. The end in the ground will eventually rot from the water in the soil, so the would need to replace the trees every so often. See my earlier reply about the history of how they came to be.

  2. I love how the trees weren’t just hacked into a million pieces but instead used in such a unique way. They look like natural flower vases or even bouquets 🙂 Very pretty!
