April 29, 2012 Trees that Bleed





Quote:
The tree in these photos is known as the Dragonís Blood tree and it is a rare type of tree that originates on a small group of four islands in the Indian Ocean. The tree contains a beautiful red sap which is called Dragonís Blood that has been used as a medicine to treat a variety of ailments and can supposedly increase the potency of witchcraft spells for sexuality, banishing, love, and protection.

Safe from A-holes only because they're remote. Don't let the Asians hear about them!

Where's the cellar "like" button?



dacliff  Monday Apr 30 07:39 AM

LOL! The first thing I thought of was 2 umbrellas, one just fine and the other turned inside out by the wind.

As a kid I watched a Box Elder being cut down. Sometimes they get some sort of disease that makes them have very red pockets of wood. It looked just like the tree was bleeding when the blood red sawdust was shooting out of the chainsaw. And the guy cutting it down made a comment that the tree was bleeding, which made an impression on me. It was cut up for firewood, but now that red wood is prized by woodworkers and is worth money.

I remember being somewhat perturbed by blood oranges as a youngster.

Tropical version of the weirwood?

We have a wood fired stove. Last year Mr Possum (my other half) was splitting some sort of dry eucalyptus logs with a log splitter and blood gushed out. It was about a cup full of it, fresh blood consistency, bright red, and it came from inside the wood. He was really shaken the first time it happened, as he thought there must have been a hollow in it with an animal inside, but it was just some sort of sap. It happened a few times with some other logs in the same batch. Each time it was a fright. Anyone here know what kind of wood it could have been? I live in south eastern Australia, and it probably would have been a local species if that helps.

Me, too. I had never seen one till I was 19, on my first trip to Europe (in Germany). The peel was a normal orange colour, then when I stuck my thumb in to peel it, it bled. I pulled a bit of the peel off, and the segment looked just like it was full of blood, with a membrane over it. Gave me the creeps, and I refused to eat any oranges there unless I could be sure it wasn't a blood orange.

I've had that happen too while splitting logs near Adaminaby in NSW. Probably common, but I don't know what causes it.

Don't cut it down! It's only dropping quarters now, but in about 3 or 4 more years it should start dropping dollars.


infinite monkey  Thursday May 3 02:48 PM

Weird. I was looking at a slideshow about 'weird fair foods' and saw this apple covered in caramel and mealworms. No, not gummy worms. Real mealworms.

How do you like THEM apples, Grav? Looks like your picture.
