the photo above was taken at Parc André Citro during our recent visit to paris.(oww… i miss paris!!) if there is only one tree i can plant for my back yard, white birch (betula papyrifera) will be no doubt the first choice. love the clean, elegant, architectural look as single or with groups.
since our back yard space can’t afford to have birch planted, bringing birch home will need to come from the other way, for instance, birch-themed home accessories. while browsing fine little day’s webshop, i spotted couple birth-themed items designed by marja rautiainen for finnish textile design company Lapuan Kankurit.
+ bath towel : reversible design brings you white birch and black birch same time :)
