We have a small grove of Birch trees in our garden and have watched them grow over the past 20 years into very large specimens. There was also another grove when we first moved here....but due to a combination of recurrent high tides, full moon and, on one occasion, a hurricane, they drowned.
I love these guys and enjoy their graceful presence.
Ron was out taking pictures of them yesterday. He got some great shots.
Hope you enjoy them.
