A Framed Birch Tree


birch trees

When I walked in the Arboretum earlier this week–before the snowstorm hit this morning–I took note of the hundreds of different trees that are on display.

I love how the trees in this part of the park frame the tree standing farther away. I love to see the striking white bark of these birches.
