It's is a giant, standing defiantly over the suburban blandscape of look-alike houses and tacky plastic yard decor. This tree is practically becoming my (inanimate) hero! It's so bad ass it doesn't even have bark, as if to say to these other tiny trees and wimpy pruned hedges: "Yes, it is freezing, but I am such a viking I don't need any bark." Bask in the glory of the Viking Tree!
(Their rooftop barely comes to the bottom branch you see in this picture. )
