Georgia's 'swimming tree' goes viral

Images of a 135-year-old tree floating on a boat along the Black Sea coast have gone viral in Georgia. Georgia's billionaire ex-Prime Minister Bidzina Ivanishvili bought the tulip tree for his private park. Mariam Kanchaveli, an activist with Guerrilla Gardening Tbilsi, told BBC Outside Source she was 'mad, sad and at the same time still laughing' while watching the tree sailing to its new owner.
