Neighbor has this tree I call the Dr. Suess tree. really interesting looking.
Trunk curves in various directions. The leaves are like long, slender blades of grass...but kinda puffy like a succulent leaf is. It has tiny little yellow, fuzzy "flowers" on it right now.
Guy has no idea what it is.


I will try to get a photo uploaded ASAP.

that is pretty but not it. the trunk of the tree actualy curves around in multiple directions, kinda like the bonsie trees do and the leaves are super long and skinny like huge blades of grass. I will get a photo of it as soon as the rain stops!
