This is a native American beech that is planted right next to the front entryway to our house... I love the trunk on this tree; the bark is a lovely, smooth silvery gray. It was an American beech in Kentucky on which Daniel Boone carved the famous words, "D Boon kilt a bar, 1803".
Your beech tree is very attractive, with the strong autumn foliage, nicely shaped canopy, and smooth, muscular looking trunk. Is that a bench sited behind and to the left of it? It would make a nice site for observing and contemplating, in between garden projects.
Northern... that's actually the roof of a small woodshed over the hill. There is a bench though; to the left and beneath the hillock, right by our front door.
Kim at A Study in Contrasts has a beautiful beech tree, too. Sadly, we have none. This is just gorgeous.Post a Comment
