Paper Bark Birch

Yesterday the weather finally warmed up- it was the warmest day we'd seen since January 28th- which was warmer :o None the less, it FELT warm after days of temperatures in the 40's and lower!
So we all went outside to wash the car (all that salt and snow dirt) and I had hoped to do some gardening, but parts of the garden beds I wanted to clear were still covered in snow.

Instead I settled in the front garden and drew a picture of our paperbark birch. A friendly mockingbird stopped by for a short visit and I draw him in ;)

The bark on this tree peels off, and was once popular with European Hornets, although we have not seen them for the last couple of years. I think I blogged about them before :)
