Every tree has something to say to those who bother to look. While out for a walk one day in Birr town in County Offaly, Ireland I came upon a lovely garden on the grounds of Wilcot B & B. The branches of this dead tree stood out because of their graphic quality against the overcast sky. The strange beauty drew me away from the lushness of the leaves and blossoms everywhere esle in the garden. What were their secret messages?
