Interstitial 131: Coral Bark

This Japanese Maple is beautiful year-round as it changes color each season. I’m not sure if the new leaves are hiding the moss and lichen that was all over the branches in winter, or if it falls off as the leaves grow and push it away.

Interstitial 113-116: Bunny, Sweet, Tiny, Rainy

I’ve posted daily on tookapic and instagram, but not here; it takes a little more time to post on WordPress. I was busy with a special guest, my Mom. She arrived Thursday and left Saturday morning. We ate at IKEA, walked in a nature park, and saw Agnes Obel. My Mom turns 70 this year. The importance of spending time with her has increased greatly.

Interstitial 86: Metaleaves

These metal leaves (which look like trees to me) are part of a bench at a nature park near my home. They were created by the Texas-based sculptor John Christensen, along with four other bench sculptures throughout the park. Each bench was created using salvaged wood from a Boy Scout lodge that was on the property before it became a park.
