Silver Birch, Sky Painting and A Tart

17 Aug

The bark on our Silver Birch is fabulous against the dark purple of the Pittosporum.

On our walk into town today, we popped into our favourite coffee shop, Home Ground, to pick up a couple of their delicious Portuguese custard tarts. During lockdown they have made some really lovely improvements, one being the painting of sky on the ceiling of their outdoor space, It’s lovely.

    And the birch is beautiful. So much like our local Aspen trees, many of which unfortunately are scarred by a virus likely to kill them all at our level of elevation.

      So very sad to hear about your beautiful Aspens.

    Home Ground outdoor space looks like a nice place to sit and have a tart!

    Portuguese custard tarts are soooo delicious. It is just as well there’s nowhere close to me that sell them.

    That looks delicious! I love the painted ceiling. Sometimes I wish I could just try cool stuff like that in my house. I mean, I guess I could, it’s mine, but imagine all the layers of paint there would be! What really caught my eye is your white birch. They are my favorite tree but I don’t see them much anymore. I think they are not as resilient as maples and oaks.
