A Little Research….

On Monday I posted a picture of bicycles hanging in a tree for Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge Week 12. A comment from Janet at This, That and the Other Thing, sent me to Google to find out what I could about the tree and the person that decided bikes look good in trees.  So, if any of you are interested in the man that decorates trees with bikes, here is a link for you to follow! The article I’ve linked was written in 2012 and George Hilton was 94 years old at that time. I took the picture this past Friday (05/16/14) so I can only assume Mr. Hilton continues to dabble in yard art!

    Thanks for the link Tree. I’d seen the bike tree before, recently, just do not remember where. What people do that is unusual always fascinates me. Hope the bike tree hangs around for years to come.

      Jackie, the tree is on the Northside of Fort Worth. Another intersting link I found is one of Oakwood Cemetary (a historic cemetary in Fort Worth). The bike tree is across the street from this cemetary and the link shows multiple photos of the cemetary and the very last picture is of Mr. Hilton’s bike tree!!
