The first natter night of 2019 and it was a very quiet night, with only Ken turning up, and even he did not bring anything to work on. So last week when Dave came over he noticed the bark on his Crab apple was breaking away from the trunk, so tonight I did a bit of exploring to see how far it had gone back.
After a clean up of the dead bark.
The other side.
Also after cleaning.
Even more interest in the trunk now.
