B is for Bark

Bark of a Palm Tree

I know all trees have bark, but this particular tree never ceases to amaze me. It feels quite alien and inorganic to the touch -  like armour plating. Its pattern is so deeply etched and regular yet it looks different every time you look, according to the play of light and shade. Its a very huggable tree and the thick ridges retain the warmth from the sun and give it back to you. For comfort. It's one of my favourite trees.

  1. Never gave much thought to the bark of a palm tree. Certainly have never philosophized about it. This was a great post. Made me both think and smile. Thanks.
