My Yellow Tree

If you’ve ever thought your WordPress Reader could use more love and light, I encourage you to check out Ramblings From Jewels. She has a perspective that always inspires me to see things differently. She takes beautiful photos and then she writes eloquent verses about them, as if there’s no end to her insight.

Anyway, she posted this photo of a yellow tree the other day and my brain was like, that’s it! we’re takin a photo of our yellow tree!

On not-alarm days, when I wake after the sunrise, I get to lie there and stare at our trees. It makes me happy. One tree is my favorite right now because its yellow leaves contrast vividly against the blue sky.

I still love all my other trees, just at different times — even when they’re leafless, so there’s no need for any of them to get jealous. Of course trees have feelings! I just love trees, Okay?!? It’s probably genetic. Look, here’s Moo huggin a tree:

we usta hafta drive all the way to savannah to see real trees!

After living without a decent view of anything for seven years, living here is pure eye candy. It’s the difference between ew and ooh.

7 years of yuck




This is what I wake up to when I get to rise after dawn:

He says Good Morning! He wishes you all a very happy Tuesday!

    When I first moved from Reno to Edmonds, WA, I lived in a top floor corner apartment with trees out every window. Such an amazing change from the desert. So excited to be going somewhere with trees again.

    I love trees, too. In fact, I used to blog about them but haven’t lately. Your trees are lovely. We have little palo verde twigs.

    I love living in natural forest land, until a storm or strong wind that is, then I become the little boy from “Poltergeist”
