A careful tree-hug this morning with a beautiful and fragile paper birch.
Its gleaming sunlit bark caught our attention through the woods.
It was a special treat meeting this papery spiral-bark-nosed tree lady.
I could have spent hours looking at the many ways it showed its delicate intricacy.
The sun glinting through a natural paper curl was magical.
Not only beautiful, this tree has many special properties. Its bark is waterproof and has antibacterial and antifungal properties. Message: Respect nature. Make its care a priority. It is our source of nourishment and life. What could be more important?
