Moustache Tree

This tree has a moustache! Isn't it so cute?
I happened to see this tree while we were walking the dog today. I don't know who decided the tree would look more handsome with some facial hair, but whoever it was has an amazing fashion sense.

I've discussed how faces make inanimate objects automatically cuter - those knots for eyes are great. But what makes this extra cute is the context - that I just came across it on a random street, and if I hadn't been watching, I might have missed it. It's not like I was walking in the moustache arboretum, where something like this would be pretty commonplace. Surprise cuteness in an unexpected location is one of life's great joys! Don't you think?

I think I would have laughed out loud if I came across that tree. Did it catch you off guard? I'm so glad you thought to snag a picture and post it here!

Hehe actually I kind of saw a black spot from afar and thought it was litter or something. Then when I realized it was a moustache I was like huh, ok. Then I saw the eyes and it all clicked. Glad you appreciate it!

That is one dandy looking tree! I think he's wearing a monocle too. Did you see if there was a silk top hat among his leaves? :D
