Legend has it a pair of enchanted trees in the shape of two chameleons grow high atop an isolated mountain in the southern region of China. Only one old sage is said to have ever made the journey and set eyes upon the magical trees. After his death, when others attempted to follow his map, they were unable to find the trees, and so they slipped into legend.

Thanks to all who helped with suggestions in the blog and a special thanks to DaniellesGarden for the flash help. This design is dedicated to our 5 year-old nephew Napoleon who came up with the original idea.
