Update: A friend told me about 'their' page on Facebook.

Love. Goes wonderfully with the nice piece in the background.

I have seen many things, on many trees but never a tree "dressed."

Virginia said...

Here in my neighborhood, they were dressing the STOP sign poles. How do they get them on there? Then they were gone. I'd love somebody to explain it all.
Bon weekend JM!

Very intriguing, I mean, why someone would do it... But it does look nice! And what a blue sky!
God bless you!

Nice street art.

Dina said...

Maybe it was a birthday present. Wednesday was Tu BiShvat, the Jewish birthday of the trees holiday. LOL

I hope this does not harm the tree. It is colorful, but I am not sure that mother nature needs enhancement.

Primeira vez que vejo algo assim. Será que pensaram que a árvore possa sentir frio?

Pelo sim ou pelo não a casca da árvore é viva e costuma aderir a outras plantas, que podem atuar como praga ou em uma relação de troca sem prejuízos.

Só espero que a árvore não se sinta sufocada.

Oportuna captura.

Wonderful! I love those knitting guerrillas that cheer us up with their quirky stuff.

Sylvia K said...

Well, that is surely different! Nothing like a well-dressed tree! Can't have those naked ones just standing around now, can we? What a fun, colorful capture for the day! Hope you have a great weekend, JM!

They seem to be covering all sorts of things!

Andrew Fulton said...

Wonderful to see..

T. Becque said...

Good together with the painted wall. And nicely composed too.

San said...

Yarnbombing, wohoo. I love this kind of streetart. It's so colorful and fun. I first encountered dressed up trees in Austria.

Your picture is magnificent too.

Enjoy your Sunday.

Well, it's a tough job, but someone has to do it; we cannot, we must not have nude trees in our cities and towns! Can you imagine what this would do to our children? At least by clothing the trees our children might be encouraged to grow up and be weavers instead of destroyers! :-)

Cute. The tree. I'm not on FB so can't get the link. I don't think.

Seems the link is broken.

What a great and fun idea. The trees might need some woollens here at the moment!

Though I don't like that graffiti, it makes the photo come together.

Look sweet:) Maybe it is good idea for trees in Poland where we have now about -20 degrees Celsius:)

Jack said...

It sure isn't the way I would spend my time, but it is pretty cool, in its own way.

JM said...

@Ciel: The link is working but you have to be logged in to Facebook.

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

I like it, it's very colorful!

Hilda said...

Cute, funny and colorful. Gotta love the artsy humor of it.

Madge @ The View From Right Here said...

Knitted Trees - We've had that in some public parks here too... don't you just love the whimsy of it all!?

Randy said...

I saw something like that one tree today. I didn't pay too much attention. Guess I should have.

VP said...

Funny and unusual...

Halcyon said...

I've heard of people knitting scarves and such for statues. But I've never seen anything like this. It's sort of pretty.

PerthDailyPhoto said...

Well how cold is it JM, that tree would not appreciate a coat here in Perth at the moment!!

NixBlog said...

LOL! Someone has too much spare time on their hands...

Babzy said...

even the trees get cold ;)

Sérgio Pontes said...

Que giro passo ai tantas vezes, ainda não tinha reparado

I'm guessing this wasn't knitted several years ago and placed around the tree when it was just a sapling.

Beautiful colors that complement the sky and walls.

Kathy said...

It is winter, after all!

(Do you get the idea that Saturday is my big comment day?)
