In a coastal town in Denmark, there is a tree which took the shape of a house to shelter itself from wind. According to the photographer,
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.
I am not sure whether this tree was trimmed by the house owner, but in case it was not, this tree is a perfect case for Darwin’s survival of the fittest theory.

In case of war, the plugs are removed. The bowlders fall on the road and block it, so that enemy tanks can not go through.
