A couple of years ago around this time, I started a project called my Year of Trees. I took a picture of the same street every week for a year, noting the changes to the trees that line that road and then put it into a video. I really enjoyed it and a number of my readers did too, so I decided to reprise it. But I wanted to focus on a different area. So I decided to go to Marymoor Park, a large park in the area with a number of vantage points and took a year of pictures there. Now, I’m starting a third year and decided to make it easier on me. A year in my yard, focusing on the walkway, my Japanese lace maple, and the front walk. So without any more ado…here we go.
Week 3: We are past the heat, into autumn now. The rains have come in, the highs are in the lower-mid 60s and lows in the 50s, and it’s absolutely wonderful. As you can see, we’ve started getting up the autumn decorations. The pumpkinscape I do every year in the front yard is waiting for ribbons and to be arranged, but the Samhain tree and my new broomsticks are up. They have orange lights that we plug in at night–I’ll take a picture some evening and post it. Next week, all the decorations should be up.
