The Tree through the Seasons #2


These photos were taken this past weekend - the massive sentinel in my backyard. Seasons change rapidly in Minnesota. Today it is 50 degrees - yesterday it was 70. Tomorrow - who knows?

Just before the riot of tumbling leaves and endless raking - soft sunshine, crisp breeze, blue sky, puffy clouds - just teetering on the edge of summer with the promise of the winter to come. Northern life - four seasons to treasure.

  1. That's great on the tree. Our trees are changing color here in the Willamette Valley of Oregon and it surprised me as we haven't had a freeze yet and these trees are along a creek; so it's not the drought. They just know it's time to turn red or gold. It's a pretty season. I just wish winter wasn't right after it :)
