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 6: We’re into the autumn winds and rains, definitely. We had quite a blustery storm the other day–very much our first “windstorm” of the season. During November, our areas get some pretty rough wind and rain storms. I generally love them, though a few have proved deadly over the years. As you can see, my Halloween Tree is down for the count. Have to go set it up again. And the leaves are falling from the trees now. Also, the Japanese lace maple is into it’s fiery season. The leaves are a brilliant red now.
