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 14: I missed week 13–my bad. We had a dry stretch where it was clear and chilly, now we’re back to rain and going into a period of nights in the 20s soon. Yule–Winter Solstice is coming up this week and then the days will start growing longer. I dunno why, but it always seems like there’s more time of them growing longer than shorter, but I know that’s just my perception. Pretty much, December.

    Thank you for sharing. I’m in the Hudson Valley of NY State, and we have some snow, but I have two maples with dry, brown leaves that still haven’t come down. Weird. Blessed Yule to all of you!

    Your yard still has a lot of green. My yard, except for the pine trees, is mostly grays and browns (sometimes snow covered) until spring.
