The black bark is hideous, and evil, like Darth Vadar, and the splits in the bark go high up the trunk.
It reminds me of a condition called elephantitis. We had a horse once, long ago, who died from it. Her skin swelled and split and oozed blood. It was horrible, and so is this.
Below is an update to when I first noticed daffodils emerging in early December.
Not all vegetative species are as resilient and tenacious. The trees are far more delicately calibrated and we are losing them. This article (found at Des) infuriates me!!
What will it take for people to connect the dots?
It's the atmosphere, folks!
Trees aren't dying in New England because of DROUGHT!!!!!!ReplyDelete
Gail, Thanks for all you continue to do. You have taught us to see what is in front of us all, yet seemingly invisible to many. We've seen more of what you report while XC skiing in MA, NH, and VT recently. Keep up the good work. We shall try to help you spread the word.ReplyDelete
P.S. Susan and I have both had trouble posting comments here other than as "Anonymous," FYI.
