tree bark turn green when the rain falls

DSC_0081

This tree is Mobile, Alabama…tree bark turns green in Birmingham too. While the tree remains dry, the bark is brown.  i love the Southern rains, always strong & heavy, nothing subtle about rain that falls here.  It is magic to drive the roads i do everyday, or to just look at my own backyard & see the changes in the earth when the rain falls.

      Very lucky that the building behind it named the town in which i was in. Also, the blah of the building just made the tree stand out all the more! Thanks, Eva! ~amy

      I think its unique to the southern states due the INSANE humidity…just a guess though. I’m a yankee & I’d never seen the like in Vermont. Thank you! ~amy

    The summer rains can be no holds barred indeed. I love the smell in the air after one of those torrents.

      I do love the smell of the Southern thunderstorms. I was lucky enough to experience one yesterday, strong enough to knock out our power for several hours. We also had a tree, with gracious manners, land gently on our roof. ~amy
