April 5 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 31: Well, none of my lettuce came up so far, but the trees are starting to leaf out and the weather alternates between cool/sunny and cool/rainy. Spring is here and so is my spring fever.

    Beautiful pics 🙂 Some Seattle areas are beautiful for sure. I will be up there in a couple of months for an apt with my RA Dr. I always love hitting the Seattle area, BOOK STORES!!! Yakima had ONE, and OF COURSE it was a Borders, so when they went under we lost our only real bookstore. Sad 🙁 I was thinking about going to Seattle Mystery while up there, maybe meet some of those nice ladies I am always communicating with when I order one of your signed books 🙂 Lovely women!! Thank you for sharing those amazing trees with us, keep em coming 🙂
