Cool! [From another post: "...This old pink house is situated at the old dunes, a few hundred meters from the west coast, a very windy place were there isn’t much that can grow. So the tree can only grow where it has shelter. It has looked this way always." Saltum, Nordjylland, DK. Photo credit, by maridesign, http://www.flickr.com/photos/mari_paintbox/4065894588/ ]
