Just a simple clump of birch trees. Raw edge applique and I used markers to shade the tree trunks. I chose colors I usually don't pick, but turned out liking the little wall hanging a lot.

i have made a file of local sites & wanna see's everywhere we've lived. we're slowing down a bit last couple years, but by next year we should be organized enough here in this forever project we call home to hit the hills around us some more. hubs is not a long distance hiker which saddens me, but we are enjoying the local mining history, ice age catastrophic floods history & related places to travel to. yeah ..lol, ya need to make a travel file, go thru it when travel opportunity coming up.

Oh wow, that hike along the coast sounds wonderful. I'll remember to contact you for details should we get the opportunity to go west again! It sounds like I need to get together a travel 'bucket list' of areas I must see before kick it. :)

Like a painting! l especially love the attention to the detail of the leaves in foreground...their placement is so realistic.

Walking those 'sacred' places in awe and silence... I need to come back to California!  I'll have to remember your Lady Bird park for our next trip. It was like being in a living cathedral, really special. :)

my first time in the founders grove area was a motorcycle trip w a bunch of friends. we weren't rowdy bikers, just happy fun lovin' hard working vacationers. we'd camped beaches & parks as we traveled south on 101. then we entered the grove. we stopped. we were all in awe. no jokes, no laughter. quiet, hushed conversation here & there among members of the group. it was like being in a huge ancient natural cathedral. living treasures from the past two thousand years. forests always make feel like i've come home. but a redwood grove mskes me feel. they are so amazing. your next trip you need to hike Lady Bird Johnson Park below Crescent City on 101. in spring when wild azaleas & rhododendrons are blooming.

I'm glad you liked it. I was thinking about your white birches surrounded by redwood trees by the way... that is a great visual! We visited a couple of the groves (Founder's Grove) about 5? years ago. I want my ashes sprinkled there, lol. It was like walking through hushed hallowed grounds.
