Spear Farm Estuary Autumn
Photograph - Photographs
Along the path of the Spear Farm Estuary, there is a lovely row of birch trees. I love birch trees, especially in the autumn! Their stark, white bark is so visit surrounded by their yellow leaves changing in the autumn months. The birch trees were used by the indigenous people of this area for many purposes! "The waterproof bark – evolved to protect the easily rotting wood – made lightweight canoes, baskets, and kept rain out of homes. The resinous birch “tar” was also used to fill canoe gaps, cure leather, and as a healing salve for mosquito bites and skin sores. Birch is still used in Native American culture and crafts."
