Kinnaird College is the home of ginormous, fantastilicious trees. I suppose the trees must be older than the college itself. The biggest ones appear to be many trees joined together to make one thick mass of clustering trunks with a joined family of branches and a trail of roots spreading across the ground in all directions. My favourite tree is the one behind the science block. It is truly a sight to behold. I wonder how the tree came to be. Is it really many trees growing together? Did they start out as saplings growing side by side? Or did one tree have so many baby trees that twisted together to form one big body?

I guess I’ll never know. But I don’t need to. The dazzling spectacle of nature is answer enough.
