Happy Approaching-Winter-Solstice!

Greetings Arborealists!

I have just returned from a weekend visit to Pennsylvania. It was my first trip to the East Coast, and I had an excellent time.

I’m set up in a little cottage in the Philadelphia region, and let me tell you – you are all in for some serious tree extravagance once I get settled! The cottage is home to several old trees, and the general area is covered with all kinds of new greenery for us to explore!

For the next few weeks, I’ll be busy with my move. However, please return periodically for updates; by late January I should be back in full-blogging-swing! We'll be up and rolling just in time for the bud-bursting in Spring!

In the mean time, may I wish you all a wonderful holiday, and a joyous Winter Solstice, however you choose to celebrate the season. I’ve included an image for you from January 2005 at my Seabeck home. You’re looking up at Western hemlocks and an alder, staples of the Seabeck landscape.

Interestingly enough, I was blessed with about three inches of snow in Renton, WA before I flew out this past Friday, and about an inch-and-a-half of snow in Philly before I flew home on Sunday. I have a sneaking suspicion that there is much more snow in my future!

PS - I almost forgot to mention... if you live in the Southern Hemisphere, then may I wish you all a Happy-Almost-Summer-Solstice as well!
