Here are different shots of the same tree from varying distances beginning from afar and gradually getting closer to it. What appeared to be an uninteresting tree from a distance had quite a many peculiarities when looked at closely. This was unlike all the trees in its neighbourhood which was a Japanese Garden.
I will visit this tree again in the summer to see it green and blooming.
