First time using my iPhone photos for here, & amazed at their size.
Every year these eucalypts shed their bark in
interesting ways, I see them when I walk to the Farmers market
early on Thursday mornings
am very fond of the abstract patterns
after 2-3 weeks these particular trees are a smooth white
each one has individual patterns
I think their position re sun, traffic, wind etc
is part of how it works
& maybe some are older
like all parts of nature, I like to think they
enjoy to be admired
not in any vain way, just naturally
a particularly intricate & subtle one
have photos from several years, (though no record of which tree)
am fairly sure its a unique creation each year.
