This is a Weeping Beech, if I translate the name literally from Dutch.
(which is: Treur-berk).
Latin name: Fagus sylvatica "pendula".
The first photo I took Nov. 12th, the second one is of Nov, 30th,
so only 18 days between. (wow, I can count good, huh!?!)
Behind the tree is our village, and the street where we live.
(our house about 250 meters directly behind it)
And now the result of that crazy upload of yesterday:
When Karel was peeling the potatoes, he discovered a very special copy.
What you saw was the inside of a potato
which had a very strange disease, anyway with nice textures.
I'm sorry, I have not dried it. Next time I want to do this!
Your ideas about it were also very special.
I must say, we've had a lot of fun on some suggestions.
F.E. that one from Richard(Richardphotos):
"a pig's ear that some critter has been chewing on".
Four smart friends were good with their idea:
The winners will get a bag full of Dutch potatoes,
of course of excellent quality.
However, to collect personally, please.
Thank you very much for your cooperation.
Love to you all!

That was one bad SPUD! ;)
(just in case, you didn't know - we call potatoes also spuds)
These are two lovely images and comparisons - next to each other and each has it's own merits!
"After Winter must come Spring", famous lyrics by Lauryn Hills come to my mind and Andrea can hardly wait, methinks ...
take care, J.

What a difference!! It's so interesting to see the same tree in different seasons, even if it was only a few weeks apart! Thank you for sharing this! I love to see how things progress.
As for the potato ... I was totally wrong! I could blame it on Helle and say I was unduly influence by her, but honestly, I thought the same as she did, and her saying so gave me courage to guess out loud. :P
