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 29: Chilly and drizzly today, like last week. Actually, it’s cooler today than it was a week ago. But we are seeing more flowers and spring is definitely on the way here. Yes, I know it’s officially started, but well…this is our spring. 🙂

    Kind of jealous you have little leaves, but the snow in NY is melting.
