Remember the other weekend when I moved the mulch pile, all 64 wheelbarrow loads of it? As I got to the bottom of the pile, I started hitting a lot of branches, and a few logs that must have been thrown into the truck at the end of the day.
This log is from a tree that I'm not familiar with, unless it's a sycamore. It's beautiful though!
Okay, I just checked with my wife who grew up in a house with a sycamore in its front yard, and she agrees that's what it probably is.
(I boosted the contrast a bit in these photos)
It's not only the exterior of this small piece of the tree that is attractive -- the interior has something going on too:
I call this photo "ET throws up". Although it also works if you think of it as the Quisp alien.
I love trees that have inner beauty too.
