Tree Bark – in Early Spring it is the Only Interesting Plant

It is April – a time when we have all had enough of Winter. I went outside to see if there were any signs of spring – Nothing… I’m ‘barking up the wrong tree’ I guess.

If you look closely at a tree you’ll notice it’s knots and dead branches, just like our bodies. What we learn is that beauty and imperfection go together wonderfully.
– Matthew Fox –


I like the me who talks to trees to let them know how well they are doing and how good they are looking. I like the me who wakes up in the morning feeling joyful that there is so much to do instead of burdened because there is so much to do.

As the poet said, ‘Only God can make a tree’ — probably because it’s so hard to figure out how to get the bark on.
– Woody Allen –


If you plant a tree, don’t keep pulling it up by the roots to see how it’s growing.

Suburbia is where the developer bulldozes out the trees, then names the streets after them.
