The tree bark wall pattern #1

The rough, similar sized, stone-like shapes hug one another tightly.
Each five or six sided 'rock' is encased inside a nest of bark 'petals'
The shaggy cells form inverse contours for their neighbours to nestle into 
The pattern is a gesture of polygonal madness 
This haphazard arrangement only enhances the sense that there is order waiting to be discovered.

  1. The bark on trees is too often an overlooked feature when choosing a speciman in the landscape design. The different textures, forms, colours, and patterns is unique to every variety. Bark tracings are always fun to try. In fact I think bark is the cats meow. -And sometimes their scratching post too! I wonder if anyone has looked at a dry stone wall and seen a tree... Good on you JSR for seeing the forest through the trees and the hidden treasures to be found in trees in the foresT.
