August 9-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 49: Temperatures are still too warm for my taste but mostly hovering in the low 80s, so it’s better. My garden is still limping around, but it’s not anywhere as successful as last year and is mainly a have for argiope spiders. We need lots of rain, which I’ve said for weeks and which is still true.

    We’ve finally gotten a bit of rain…not nearly enough, but I don’t care! Some is better than nothing!
    Poor Seattle…I can’t fathom it being so hot for so long….everything sere from lack of rain…

    As the leaves don’t really change colors here in Florida, it has been so cool watching the changes of your trees here on your blog.
