  1. Hi Friends!

    The burl makes it look as if the tree came with a built-in birdnest-basket! I really like the geometric patterns the bark creates in this close-up view.

    Really holding thumbs that you feel much better very quickly Joey!

    Wishing you a peaceful weekend from an overcast friday morning in Pretoria


    • Hi Dries,

      Slowly but surely every day my back gets a little better. I’m just trying to walk and slowly stretch out the muscles. Lying down and sitting are still painful so I’m not doing much of either.

      Those oak burls are fascinating and make for great photography. I just learned that they are also highly sought after by wood carvers and artists as they have beautiful grain and are really hard wood. This particular burl is at least as big as a basket ball to give you an idea of its size.

      Sending you and Marilize some wonderful Florida sunshine to brighten up your Friday. Have a lovely weekend.
