Kindness White Birch trees are gentle beings, kind and nurturing with a love of community.
I always enjoy visiting with this stand of birch, admiring how they surround and embrace the one "odd man out" of the group - a distinctly singular dark-colored white birch.
The other trees surround him with love, gentleness and acceptance.
The rest of the birch live in clusters - communities where each is distinct yet unique. He stands in grey aloneness and yet is part of the same species and takes part in the same curving dance. He is just more unique than the rest, and that is alright with the group!
This stand is just outside the Regenstein Center, Chicago Botanic Garden.
