May 10 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 36: So it’s been crazy warm for a few days, though it’s cooling back down to the 60s for a week or so with rain, which we do need. As you can see, the leaves are burgeoning out and green, everywhere. The cottonwood is also in season (my allergies know that!).

    My first daffie bloomed yesterday, in honor of Mother’s Day 😉
    Our trees are getting leaves as well, although the trees down the “hill” read mountainside, are further along. 34 degrees this morning “up the hill”, 41 “down the hill”.

    Beautiful, and so green. We have to really restrict watering here in California with a four year drought. I miss the color green a lot being from the Coast of Oregon.
