Thanksgiving Photos

Monday, November 26th, 2007

thanksgivingtree12.jpgI will be quite occupied Monday so I am blogging photos today. Brian and I took a walk on Thanksgiving day, last Thursday. It snowed the night before, for the first time (at least the first where it stuck).

The neighborhood was almost like a ghost town, no cars driving around at all. With the snow on the ground, sounds were muffled. We could hear the swishing of cars on the main roads on the west and east of our neighborhood, but things were very silent in our corner of the world.

This tree is in our side yard. I think it is interesting how we can see the actual colors of a tree trunk when the snow makes the green grass unimportant, and the wet bark intensifies what colors are there. Lichen and moss are really beautiful colors of green.

The larger-view neighborhood photo is one block from our house. When all the maple trees turn color, they are blazing orange and the yellow trees seem less than interesting. However, at this time of year, the few remaining red and yellow leaves (and those on the ground, which finally fell when it finally froze hard overnight) become very interesting on their own merits. They are particularly nice if both in the same view.

Thanksgiving need not be a single day. Tell someone you love them today, OK?
