Pretend for a moment that you’re a young suburban tree. Times are tough with drought conditions all over, and you need to find water. You know that the house right next to you has water you could capture a few times a day — so it makes sense that a tree would choose to grow roots under the shower tiles, right?
I’m not sure if someone neglected to remove the roots before construction of the shower stall or if a tree managed to figure out where a good source of water might be, but I’ve never seen this — it’s cool and a little bit creepy, like something from a horror movie. Props to Flickr pool member gregjsmith for the sweet photo.
