I love tree bark. It is an endless source of fascination to me.
There are so many different patterns in trees, and I enjoy seeing how different they are, especially in a close-up photo.
I love how gnarly the bark of this old oak tree looks.
It reminds me of The Lord of the Rings by JR. Tolkien. It’s one of our favorite books we have studied in homeschooling.
Treebeard is one of my all time favorite characters.
Can’t you just see this tree coming to life?
This tree needs eyes and a mouth so it can talk and tell us how it’s feeling.
Do you think bark can talk? Perhaps only in legends.
There are those that believe in hugging trees.
The legend says that if you hug a tree from the eastern side early in the morning, and put the base of your rib cage up against it, the energy from the tree will flow through you and make you feel great throughout the day.
Give it a try and let me know how it works.
Say “hi” to Treebeard.
