Birch Theme • Series Overview

Over the past two years I have done more posts about birch trees and using this beautiful natural resource than any other single topic. It is time to pull all of those posts together into an overview and add it to my themes page. Creating the theme pages is rather a time consuming bother but I find I use them over and over again. I think you would also find them useful. You can see the others I have completed by clicking on the Theme heading in the header navigation links above.

But before you go exploring, take a minute to review my birch theme designed to pull together so many ideas into one place. I have mixed them up and put the inspirational ones first and then some of my projects last. The source information for all these photos is listed on the original page - so just click through for the complete listing.
