Take Two

Recently I published a post about one tree, today I follow up with a post about two logs. Of course they are from Silver Birch trees, my favourite trees. When we have our log supply for the winter delivered the birch logs always look so colourful and full of textures. These two started getting more colourful and as the bark dried and peeled the textures got more interesting.

So I popped them down on the back lawn and took these shots. Please enjoy! You just have to like the curly bits! Look closely and you will find landscapes in miniature brought out by the bright sunlight.

  1. Yes I know what you mean about the curly bits – lovely! It is a favourite tree of mine too.

  2. We have a wood store at work where we season split timber taken from the estate. I always find it amazing some of the textures and colours you find on the logs! And your right, Silver Birch is especially colourful.
