July 26 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 47: We’ve had three glorious cloudy and rainy days and I am so grateful for the break. It’s supposed to be hot again this week, but I’m hoping–HOPING–that the weather peeps are wrong. But right now, it’s cooler and cloudy and it smells like rain and moss and fir trees, and it’s everything wonderful we love about this area. 🙂

    Wish I could send some of our Florida rain to the areas that need it. I really enjoyed the seasonal change of the trees. Wishing you a wonderful week.

    I know I was struck by how dry everything was in Seattle when I was there in June for my niece’s wedding.
    I’m so glad you got rain and that we, too, here in AK, got some rain!
    We are as dry as Seattle…very scary…especially when the moss is no longer green 🙁
