Tales Of Our Trees
Trees have tales to tell and two Kendal residents, Harry Hammond and Martin Wells related many of these tree tales in the residents' monthly newsletter. Below, for your reading enjoyment, you will find tree tales. The botanical name in each tale is a link to that tree's page with the beautiful work of Judy Czeiner, the photographer for this website.
The Rewards of Observing Details
“Thinking is more interesting than knowing, but not so interesting as looking.”
--Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Cinnamon Sticks, Up to the Sky
A thing we have in abundance at Kendal is serendipity—something pleasant happening that wasn’t looked for, as when a nuthatch being watched leads the eye to a tree whose bark is the color of cinnamon.
