Dawson Park in Edmonton is a delightful park for walkers, joggers, cyclists, and dog owners, and it runs alongside the North Saskatchewan River. I had not been there before today because I don’t usually go to dog parks. This one, though, is well worth a visit.
All the dogs I saw were well behaved and I heard only two of them bark. That got me wondering why we use the same word for the outside of a tree that we use for the sound a dog makes. That, in turn, reminded me of some of the photos I have taken of tree bark.
I don’t have any pictures of Dawson Park yet, but I do have tree bark.
Interesting collection! I know the one that looks like army camouflage is a sycamore, as I saw one once and asked. They are rare around here.
Thanks, Barb. I took that photo in San Jose.
Your tree bark is ART! Such a beautiful take and fabulous photos. Thank you for sharing.
I put my name in the email box…which mad me anonymous.
These are so interesting and detailed 🙂
Thank you, June. I love the textures of trees.
Hmmm …the last two photos. Are these examples of the destruction/damage caused by shot hole borer beetle?
I meant to write the images with all the holes?
OK. I take back that woodpecker assumption. I thought I had taken the photo in Edmonton, but it turns out I took it in San Jose, CA at the Guadalupe Oak Grove Park.
No, woodpeckers. Probably Northern Flicker. … I think. Now you’ve got me wondering.
I smiled! and chuckled love your blog.
I’m happy I gave you a smile, Susan!
Beautiful and artistic photos.
