I want one of these! Imagine stepping into your back yard and picking your choice of the 40 kinds of fruit available from this tree. Just look at the colors! With this baby in the yard, spring would become even more gorgeous. Come autumn, I’m sure the leaves are equally vivid. I’d sure like to find out.

The idea for this multi-fruit tree did not come from a botanist or any scientist. An artist conceived of it and set to work, grafting 40 various fruit branches onto one tree. His imagination and creativity boggles my mind. For more information take a listen to the approximately two-minute interview at http://n.pr/1uXqdRM

Creativity-where would we be without it? I don’t know about you, but Sam Van Aken certainly inspires me to think in new ways and paint the world with a brush that moves things out of the realm of what we know. Very cool, and yeah, I think I’ll do that with my writing.

Until Monday, and wishing you a Fantastic Friday and a great weekend,

Ann
