June 7th 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 40: Twelve more weeks to go! OMG, has it been almost a year yet? I guess…time moves on and this blog series has helped really point that out. So here is today’s picture. We have warm, warm weather today after a cool rainy spate, and we actually headed out ferry hopping today after getting my tree picture. It was lovely. I’ll post pictures later. But as you can see, we’re into early summer, and hard to believe the Solstice will be here soon, and then–the year will begin to wane again.

    The green looks lovely. I agree it’s hard to believe it’s almost been a year. I’m glad you had some warm weather. Ferry hopping sounds like a delightful way to spend a Sunday.
