Texture and colour

This photograph shows the colourful bark of a mature Eucalyptus tree, my own Eucalyptus is quite small and it will be sometime before I can match this specimen found on a canal bank in Empuriabrava, on the Gulf of Roses. As the tree matures the bark peels away in papery layers to reveal the previously hidden colours.

Stems and branches of many shrubs can provide structure and colour during winter when there are fewr flowers around.
