Tree Tracery.

For those of you who have ever wondered about the handwriting of trees, artist Tim Knowles has your answer. By attaching pens to the trees' branches, Knowles was able to record the unique artistry and expressiveness of each. See more at his website, here...

...and have a wonderful Tuesday - I'm off to a coffee-and-work meeting with the lovely Emily Johnston Anderson,  and then will spend the rest of the afternoon with my niece. It's snowing here today - I see stomping in my future!
