I grew up in the trees! Our yard was about an acre and outlined with maple trees. I climbed them all the time. I sat in them to read and write and draw. We played games in them. so many good memories of those trees.
Now we live on the edge of a forest. Our development’s walking path goes through the woods. I enjoy looking at the trees from our home/yard. Sadly many are dying from disease or insects. But I still love trees. One of my favorites is when the watching the wind blow through the trees, turning their leaves, just before a storm. Another is watching the squirrels jump from tree to tree on their branches, which look like they will barely hold the squirrel!
I am really looking forward to getting out west for the first time (this summer to Vegas/Grand Canyon & next summer to Yosemite) and seeing the differences in nature and the landscapes!
