Paula at Black and white Sunday has provided me with an opportunity to pay tribute to a grand old tree, a mossy textured giant near the playground where the twins draw with pavement chalk, half-heartedly use equipment they’ve outgrown, and watch diggers removing and replacing paving stones in front of the villa. I pass it every day and its twisted bark, interweaving green and grey, draws my camera and a gasp of appreciation over and over again.

    Well, just a quick peek here first, even though I just knew it would be bark. VERY nice bark. 🙂 Is it hug a tree week yet?


    • Is there a hug-a-tree week? I thought you had to do it every week. I’m a bit predictable, eh? Thanks for Becky’s orchids. They were superb, and all on one walk. We’re heading into a warm week or two, and Thursday’s a holiday for Corpus Christi. Have a great walk and a great week.

    I think a tree can be hugged any time or day, but sometimes it’s good to check who’s watching!

    Love the patterns in the bark of this tree. They remind me of the chevrons in rocks you photographed close to home last year. Amazing how nature’s patterns repeat.

    This is amazing, Meg. Congratulations on the shot. So many intricacies so well captured.
