July 19 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 46: Today we’re back to hot, but tomorrow it’s supposed to be back to 78 degrees. We’re over summer–we’re so over summer. I’m ready for autumn. (But then, about this time of year, I’m already getting tired of the sunshine). The leaves are drooping on the trees, the grass is parched, I’m surprised we’ve managed to save our tomatoes and vine veggies, but we’ll see how that goes the rest of the season.
