Lovely tree with character, indeed. I wonder how the hole got there.
Gorgeously painted trunk and leaves, Joan! It makes me sad to see the hole in the tree...rather like a gaping wound.
Thanks Tina and Sherry. It look sort of like the limb cracked off or was cut off at some time.
Dear Joan- what a wonderful portrait of a tree. The white/ gray bark really captures the beauty of this Tree.
