    They might be messy,Trish,but beautiful!

  • True Lance, they do have some redeeming factors. The ground is an incredible sight after we get strong winds at this stage, it’s amazing just how much they shed ! Thank you very much for your comments, as well as favouriting !

    I would love to see this, Is it the only tree that sheds its bark each year? Excellent colors and textures

  • Byron, it is by no means the only one to shed in large quantities … I will have to see if I can find a shot of a different one shedding in long strips of bark, finer texture than this. Thank you very much for your wonderful comments and favourite !
