In the Eastern States, where these trees mostly come from, this season is known as Barkfall. Julie Brett, a fellow Druid from Druids Downunder, worked out out this seasonal wheel of the year for Sydney, her home.
Connection to where you live is very important to Druidy people. :) I haven't done this for my bit of WA yet, but I've been keeping an observational diary to help me do so in the future.
|Andrew eyeing off weird protuberances left behind when this tree shed its bark. Parasites perhaps?|
|Weird Knobs. Hey, it's not everyday you get to write something like that!|
|This tree is known to me as Pinky. I thought that it was a bit of an undignified name but she liked it.|
|Now you're just getting silly!|
|All that bark has to go somewhere!|
In the meantime, I feel my shoulders crawl whenever I have to go under it to collect sticks!
Are you connected to the land and seasons where you live?
