Melaleuca Bark (Paperbark) by onewing

Melaleuca Bark (Paperbark)

We have about 20 trees in our garden and over the next few days I will be posting photos of tree bark from some of them. Today it is our melaleuca tree (paper bark) I love the colours and papery feel to the bark of this tree.
Great capture of these amazing textures and tones. One can see where the name comes from.

@casablanca @happypat Do you remember when you were in primary school how you used to peel the crumbling paint off the railings in the playground? Well peeling the papery bark off this tree is just like that, very satisfying. ha ha.

@onewing YES! I remember doing that! And peeling Copydex white glue off my hands after art lessons......so rewarding!!

That can only be described as gnarly. Fascinating to look at Babs.
