Sunday Trees – Gnarly Bark in the Park

Sunday Trees – Gnarly Bark in the Park

Here are some photos of trees in a park here, showing their gnarly bark.

First one is looking upward into the tree branches. I was standing right under, by the trunk. (Browns & greens)

The next one is a close up of the bark. Bark on trees is always interesting in the patterns it makes, and how rough it feels.

Third photo is another tree in a park, Can you find the squirrel? (he’s sitting in shadows as a sillouette way up in the branches – upper left)

Last photo is another park tree. It’s roots and bark are mostly in the water, with green branches hanging over.

Sunday Trees – Love Chime

Sunday Trees – Love Chime

https://beccagivens.wordpress.com/2019/05/26/sunday-trees-393/

For today’s Sunday Trees challenge, I have photos of our one tree in the front yard. I think it is a fruitless Mulberry, and has been here for many years.

I have a couple of wind chimes hanging from the branches, and this little black & white kitty was looking at them, as he stood on the wooden bench beneath the tree.

The one chime is made of silver colored pipes and makes a nice sound. The other one – two views – is all rusted. It has the word Love spelled out, and there are several cow bells hanging from it. This chime has been there so long, the tree has grown around the ring on the chime.

Then, here’s a poem I wrote way back in 2015 about trees.

Little kitty, wind chimes, our tree!

TREES

Trees in winter

They stand and stare

Do they think that it’s not fair?

Patient they stand

Stark and bare

Enduring winter’s brutal air

Do trees dream of winter’s end,

Yearning for springtime to begin?

A fresh, new start

Green leaves so frilly

A time to rejoice, a time to be silly

Rustling with the nesting of birds,

Pretty music they make, without any words.

A sanctuary for many species

The need for trees only increases

Giving hope, shelter, and shade,

A tree’s true purpose will never fade.

I think a tree must know it’s worth…

The reason it is put on this Earth.

Sunday Trees – Contrast

Sunday Trees – Contrast

For today’s Sunday Trees I have two contrasting photos.

The first one is an elaborately decorated live tree. It was for the Christmas season in Columbia Missouri. It has all the colors of the rainbow along all the many branches, and lit up against the dark night sky, it was beautiful

The next photo you could say is absent of any color. It is our neighbor’s tree with all the branches covered in thick white ice, and is also beautiful.

Branches – Sunday Trees

Here’s a bunch of tree branches from trees we saw in a park here one day a couple of years ago.

I love to see how branches and tree bark are all so different and interesting.

Can you spot the squirrel in the second photo? 🙂

Sunday Trees – Parking Lot Trees

Sunday Trees – Parking Lot Trees

Standing by a restaurant we went to the other day, I looked around the area. There were several trees decorating the parking lot by the place, and by an apartment building across the way.

Medium sized tree with pretty pink rose bush at the base of the trunk.

Light green, medium sized tree in front of brick multi-story apartment building.

Large tree in shadows, with several dark brown/black looking branches.
