An evergreen tree felt right for this rainy morning-hug.
It was interesting to learn that the eastern red cedar actually belongs to the juniper species.
The bark had a warm cloth-like feeling. Its peeling fibrous threads created a rich bark-tapestry of colors and texture.
A rippled tree-face appeared through the grid of bark-lines.
I was cheered by a friendly branch-being that peeked out to see who had stopped by to visit. Message: Each day, any weather, has its own special beauty and charm. Take the time to be present with it and discover. Life is good. Peace
