Life of a Tree

The life of a tree is revealed not just by its height or its growth rings, but by the marks and scars its days have wrought upon its bark. The bark reveals the character of a tree in the same way the lines on a person's face show his or her age. The bark speaks of hardships endured, as well as of life-force and survival.

  3. Kim, I guess trees can be a metaphor for aging with grace. I'll have to keep that in mind!

  4. Thanks KML. I love all your photos too! Aren't we lucky to find such beauty in the world!
