Scars, burls, peeling bark, lichen, insect and animal markings—come explore the intimate, fascinating, up close world of tree bark as seen through the lens and sensibilities of photographer Jennifer Weigel. This Arnold Arboretum exhibition of Weigel’s photographic series illuminates the often overlooked beauty found in the bark of trees and shrubs. As an artist, Weigel is particularly drawn to details in nature and the unique individuality of each tree. Through her images, she portrays each plant’s history within the beauty, as well as the bruises, of its outer surfaces.

We know you may be rolling your eyes, but yes, it’s only October, and yes, we are gearing up for Wreath Season. Soon our order forms will be in the mail to those of you who have purchased wreaths during the past two years, and our on-line wreath store will be taking orders as well. For those of you who prefer to purchase by mail, email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will attach a form to our reply for you to print, or mail one to you if you wish. Wreath sales constitute our second biggest fund raising effort each year, second only to the Twilight Garden Party, and your support helps us fund our tree care projects throughout the neighborhood. Wreaths will be ready for pick up or delivery (Back Bay, Beacon Hill, South End) December 7 and 8. Wreaths come in two sizes, standard (approximately 22″ wide once fluffed) and large (approximately 30″ wide from tip to tip), and may be ordered plain, with a bow, or fully decorated. Fully decorated wreaths are only available in standard size. We also have red or white poinsettias for sale. In future posts you will see pictures of many custom designed wreaths, but if you’re curious now, search “Wreath of the Day” on our website, or click on the links to pictures from past years on the Wreath Store page. No two wreaths are ever alike, unless you order a matched pair, and you’ll have input into colors and styles, or can just leave it to us. Only 125 fully decorated wreaths are offered, and we have sold out each year, so don’t delay.
