One Beech


This large beech tree is one of a few near the entrance of a large Milwaukee cemetery. Beech trees are quite majestic trees with multiple large trunks and grand canopies that spread wider than they are usually tall. I walk by this particular tree frequently and stopped on this occasion to examine the picturesque bark. The purple flower tucked into a cleft in the trunk was undoubtedly part of a memorial that someone must have picked up.
