B is for Bark
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.
