“Mum, you’ve gone bark…..ing mad”
~ my 14 year old, joking with me 🙂
I have a thing about tree bark. I made a decision a few years ago, to focus and see the beauty all around me. I don’t find joy or peace in people… so I turned my attention to beauty in nature and all God provides.
I love sunsets and sunrises. I love the beach and the mountains. I love all the many magnificent leaves and flowers. It’s why I now love gardening.
Here in Australia, the many different trees have amazing bark. Very different, from very rugged and gnarly, to very smooth. Many different textures and I love the variety.
I take notice of this, as I go for walks with my boys and my dog. It brings me some joy.
I love tree bark…. and if that makes “barking mad”, I’m okay with it 🙂
It’s an appreciation of beauty and some mindfulness, that helps my emotional wellbeing.
