Fantastic picture, LisaBee. Sycamores are blessed with incredibly coloured bark. We have a few lining one of our main streets and they are amazing.

My goodness, that it beautiful. I took a picture of the lichens on my oak, but I think yours is better. I like your blog.

Hello LisaBee;

Just caught up with you through Garden Voices and am enjoying all your blogs. Often the simple views of our gardens receive great praise. Many would not have thought of this picture but it is special.

Here in north central Vermont there are very few sycamores and they are different than what you picture. In southern Vermont there are many probably virgin trees four feet through. Having seen your picture and thought about it, I have no idea what the wood was/is used for.

Best wishes from Vermont where it is pouring rain, compressing our snow pack and melting this morning's 2" of sleet.

Hi Lisa,

When we were in New Zealand we saw a few of the remaining Kauri trees - tiny remnants of vast forests.
Kauri bark is composed of flaking "cells", even more so than the sycamore, the native climbing "ratas" that often smother other trees, can't a grip on the Kauri...their runners get shed off the tree along with the Kauri bark.
