Bark Art Part 2


In our area there are thousands of species of Palm Trees. I know the names of none of them. All that I can tell you about this Palm tree is: the trunk was so beautiful and colorful I had to snap closeup shots.


God is the experience of looking at a tree and saying, "Ah!"


- Joseph Campbell

Your mind is a garden,your thoughts are the seeds, 
the harvest can be either flowers or weeds.- Author Unknown




I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help, My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth. Psalm 121: 1-2

Oh I love the texture on that! OBTW Several people who commented on my "Monochrome Lake" post for Phun Phriday! wondered how it was done, so I posted a tutorial on it today. If you're interested just click here. Thanks for dropping by and your comment.

Gorgeous. The cracks in the bark resemble the cracks in Buddy's skin. i wonder it there's pain for the trees?

I've proboblay never seen palm tree trunks up close, so this is cool. Again with the great quotes, but my favorite today is your most excellent header. WOW to that!

I love how the trunks look like they might be wearing girdles - sucking them in every so often to make them thinner here and there. I never noticed that before...

I don't think I have ever seen a palm trunk quite like this one, very interesting. It almost looks like circles have been stacked one on top of the other.

I like your bark art. I've never paid that much attention to the bark of palm trees. I will from now on.
