  1. I’ve seen a bunch of square root day posts today, but no one else had a photo of a tree with actual square roots. That’s pretty cool.

    1. I should offer a hat-tip to Miss Cellania, who wrote the first article above. She found the tree with square roots at Flickr and included it near the end of her post. I loved the picture and just had to use it.

  2. Thanks for finding these! I’m so sorry I missed it yesterday!

    The rootin’ tootin’ one is sad. The author is taking her stand as a math-phobe.
