I've always loved birch trees and found them to be magical in some sense. They remind me of my nana for some reason, and of lots of other wonderful things. For this reason, I've decided to embark upon a small endeavor of birch tree studies. I'm really excited. This morning I sat on the ground amidst a suspicious scattering of small bluejay feathers (perhaps from the heads of our two bald blue jays - yes, I said bald bluejays) and drew our birch trees.
