Sean Smith, a reporter for the Hendersonville Times-News, wrote a lovely article about the book, "These Trees." It was published in the September 3, 2017 issue. Here is the link:
The above photograph of a Sargent Weeping Hemlock, taken at Bullington Garden in Hendersonville, NC, was the top photograph in the article. Smith did a good job of capturing my passion for trees because I am, as he quotes me, "besotted with bark." The below photograph of monkeypod bark, taken in Hawaii, is one of my top 20 favorite bark pictures.
The article also references my next event -- Poemscapes -- at the Hendersonville Public Library at 3pm on September 20. It will be a mixed media event of slides, prints, and poems about trees. Poets Kate Stockman and Carol Pearce Bjorlie will be reading their poems. I hope to see you there.
Ruthie photographs trees because she loves them.
