Tantalizing Textures

The leaves have fallen on many of our trees, revealing the often overlooked textures and colors of their beautiful bark. The bark of trees and shrubs can create a tantalizing display of papery peels, deep gnarled fissures and lovely color gradients that provide visual interest throughout the fall and winter.
