I loved the gnarly look of this tree. I took this about 7 or 8 years ago, I wonder if the tree is even still there now or did it disintegrate into a pile of sawdust? Trees can have so much character, the textures, colors, patterns of different species. I miss the catalpa tree we had at our old house, it had been struck by lightning so it had some interesting marks on the trunk. The ones here are rather boring. Maybe we need to plant a tree?
Warmer temps here, it's officially melt off time. It's going to take a while though, still quite a bit of snow on the ground even with a nice warm weekend. Looking forward to seeing mud though, hopefully followed by some new grass. Spring will be here soon!
