Sap glass

This week we drove past a boulevard where they were cutting down a whole row of Russian Olive trees! I couldn’t just pass up all that beautiful wood, so we asked a friend to come help us and we got two full carloads of wood. I think I’m going to be turning this stuff for the next ten years … there’s so much of it!

While I was working on organizing the wood, I noticed something interesting. The sap was oozing out from under the bark, and drying in the coolest shapes. It looked like glass work! I just had to get Anni to take some pictures of it.

So cool! Have you ever seen that happen before?
