Wordless Wednesday - a tide of bark through a reef of lenticels

Haven't the foggiest idea what the title means, nor what the picture is of - but it's rather good as a pattern though.

Hi Lucy, thanks for commenting. It's the bark of a Prunus (not sure which one). I thought that the mahogany-looking bark looked as though it was flowing through the raised areas. These are lenticels - the "breathing holes" of the bark, connecting the inside of the bark to the outside. It looked like the waves washing through rocks on the beach.

That is a beautiful picture. I love it. It would have to be my desktop/screen saver/all purpose background to life.

I didn't understand the title either but i still think it's a very fab photo. Happy WW.

Beautiful bark. Good eye.

I had to look up lenticels - having misread it as lentils when I glanced at the title. The picture is lovely too!
