Flashback Friday

dsc_0308

Restoring my garden beds from the freeze we had, has taken up all my time these last few weeks.  I realized I haven’t posted very much, so this is a perfect day for a flashback.  I did a series on trees and I thought this post on Bark would be a good addition. Click on “Bark” and hopefully it will inspire you to take a closer look at trees around you.

    Great flashback – It’s interesting how much variation there is in the bark from one type of tree to the next.

    Thanks for this. I’m really trying to learn trees, and I’m keeping your bark post open in a tab so I can go back and really study it. I’ve know that birch bark differs from, say, pine bark, and I can recognize that. But it seems that bark’s a good indicator for many trees that might otherwise be more difficult to ID. Hackberry, black cherry, various elms — they all differ. Learning how is the trick.
