Since I couldn’t decide…

I usually only post one photo on Tuesdays, but I’m not in a decisive mood today, apparently.


I like the colors of autumn, of course, but this green stuff is pretty hard to beat too.


Green, red, or yellow…I just like it when the trees have leaves on them and I’m trying not to think about the months of bare branches that are coming up.   Oof.

But nothing is all good, and nothing is all bad, right?   So when the bare-branch months are here, I’ll do my best to see the good in them.

For the moment, though, I’m just busy seeing the good in the leafy season we’re still in!

Thanks for the cute pics and message! The leaves here in Kansas are not quite "fall" colors either but they are still worthy of picture taking. I think I need to get out my camera tomorrow and just enjoy the beauty of what they have to offer. Thank you :)

I live in North Florida and much of this heavily wooded area is covered in evergreen trees -- pines mostly, but also palms, cedar, cypress and of course Live Oaks, which hold green leaves all winter and then suddenly drop them when the new leaves push the old leaves off the branches in spring. Well, at least that seems to be how it works, because you never see bare limbs; just one day all old dull green leaves and the next day, a ton of fallen leaves on the ground and fresh bright new green on the tree. However, we have some trees that turn colors in the fall and then go bare in the winter, even here, and I love to see that. I love the tree pictures, Kristen -- I love trees! -- but I am so looking forward to cooler days with some color mixed in with all that green.

Wow! I envy all those tall and thick trees. I don't know where you live but there aren't that many trees where I live. I live in SLC, UT. The east side of the valley has big trees but not near as many as you have. I live on the west side and the trees are more scarce and not as tall - obviously not as much ground water on the west side. sigh....

I'm on the east coast, so yes, very different from you guys in Utah! My uncle used to visit from South Dakota and he always said he couldn't see where he was going while driving because the trees were so in the way. Heh.

Beautiful, I love to be around trees and water. My family would camp in the Serra mountains when I was a teen. I miss them so much. We have sun almost year round, (good)but no rain(bad).

I agree with Addy. I love to see the shapes of the trees/branches without leaves. Some of them can be breathtakingly beautiful. In addition to seeing nests, that would otherwise be hidden, you can often see buildings, farms, stands of evergreens, etc. that you would not know were present when foliage is full. I also like to see the variations in browns/tans/grays that the bark exhibits.
