Fading to Green

Every day I say to myself, "how can I take another photo of this tree?" I mean, just how many photos of leaves and sunlight does one really need? But, every day, this tree amazes me, and I am compelled. My neighbors must think I'm crazy. One has stopped to ask me if we are selling the house and gathering photos for a listing. "No, I say. I'm just taking some photos for fun." It is fun.

The deep burgundy is beginning to fade to green-- especially from underneath the leaves when the sunlight shines through. I wonder what mixture of colors it will be next week? I'll be watching and waiting to see and share.

Fun is all it needs to be. It happens to be beautiful, too. And spreading beauty in the world is a great thing to do.

I'm glad you keep taking pictures of the tree! It's so beautiful, and reminds me of my grandmother's house, where there was a similar tree in the front yard...
