Not found anywhere near Pink Gardens!
My friend Bette shot these photographs of a Madrona tree (Arbutus menziesii) at the beach near her house in Seattle. I'd never heard of this species before she sent me the pics—apparently they're only found on the northwest coast—Washington, Oregon, Vancouver. It's gorgeous, ain't it!

Wonderful abstract created by peeling pieces of bark. The coloring is unexpected, too, inside and out.
