Många märkliga o. intressanta träd i denna kyrkogård. Vem kunde ana att björkarna var skära i Kina. /Björn
What a precious photo, Peter! Is it normal for this birch to peel its bark like that. Beautiful colours! Y*!
thank you so much May for your praise. Yes this Birch is planted because of it's appearence. The bark is often the victim for eager childrens fingers - so much the more i was surprised to find this intact in a public place. Cheers, Peter
Lovely shot, exactly as I saw it this winter in China! Best wishes, Fai
wow - you really did Fai? was it in the wild? Thank you and Best Wishes from Denmark, Peter
Wowee Peter - lovely colours, and lovely peeling bark!! Thanks for supplying your Bark tag. I must work on my album tags too.
Such a lovely picture.
Just up the road from our townhouses - on the mountain slope, there is an Arboretum started a couple of centuries back, and there are trees from all over the world. I must go and check it out. I will find lots of bark photo material there : for example, the Cork-bark trees are amazing, and there are Australian Paperbarks that have thick pink-brown, peeling, velvety bark, like soft Chamois leather.
