March tree

There is a street nearby that I absolutely love. Really, it could be any street, there’s nothing really outstanding about it, except for the fact that it is lined with trees. Now this a common sight around here except these are all deciduous trees. And every autumn they blaze into color around the same time. And every spring, they suddenly burst forth with leaves around the same time.

We have lived in this neighborhood since September 2010, so for four years now Samwise and I have driven down that street several times a week and I have watched the trees change through the year. So yesterday, when I was commenting on how much I like that street, Samwise suggested an idea and it seemed like a cool project. We’ll see if I can manage it — or rather manage to remember to do it — but I want to give it a try.

Every week, every Sunday, we will drive over there and I will take a picture from the same place. And I will post that picture on my blog. For a year, I will chronicle the change of seasons through these pictures. Maybe I’ll get bored partway through and stop, or maybe in a year I’ll have 52 pictures of the street from the same position. I guess we’ll find out!

Week 26: I’m at the halfway mark for this project!!! And I’ve missed a few weeks, but honestly, I didn’t expect to get to this point. Okay, as you can see, the leaves are starting to bud out on the trees and we are headed toward spring. (No, I’m not rubbing it in to those of you stuck in the snow…we don’t have enough snow in the mountains and it’s not a good thing here). So yeah, another week, and once again, we have trees. 🙂

    I love your weekly trees! My husband and I are looking to move to Washington state. I think it is absolutely beautiful there!

      It really is, though I do NOT like eastern Washington–way too dry there for me. But western WA/the coast is incredible.

        My husband likes the eastern part. He is from BC, Canada, the dry side. I love the western side of Washington. That is where we are looking to move. What I have researched of their education system, seems to be better than here in Tennessee. (I teach here.) My oldest son is also looking at going to college in Washington. He is in 8th grade, we have a little while before that move will happen lol.

    I love your weekly trees. Last week we had a “heavy” snow that looked so pretty on the trees in my back yard. I wish I could have gotten a picture to share, but the temps rose fairly quickly and all the snow melted out of the trees before I could get out there with my camera. I don’t have a camera phone. Just a digital camera. Maybe I’ll get another chance later this week. They’re calling for more snow on Thursday. Kinda over the snow though.

      Snow is beautiful on the trees…though I have so many friends on the east coast who are so ready for spring! We didn’t have a good winter here, not enough snow in the mountains and that can spell trouble in summer.
