The trees are starting to paint the landscape! What a thrill to come upon this beautiful Beech tree.
A majestic tree-goddess.
Tree-legs reaching to the sky.
Smooth bark is cooler to the touch than textured bark. It is also more comfortable to lay your cheek on when tree-hugging. Though I am noticing as the temperature is getting colder, the smooth tree bark is getting colder too.
Temperature doesn't seem to be a problem for these kissing tree-lovers. Message: Dance with the colors and the Autumn light. Peace, Love & Nature.
Black Birch bark. Pretty cool looking with the lichen and embossed leaf. If you scrape a twig from this tree it will smell like wintergreen.
