Damaged Sweetgum Tree in January

This sweetgum tree has lost a lot of bark. The lichen have also made themselves at home. We would almost think the tree is dead were it not for the newer shoots branching out. I liked the way the colorful leaves still clinging to those small branches contrasted with the rosemary's pale blue flowers and green needle-like leaves. Winter needs all the color it can get.
