Hello Everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful August! Today I am basking in some glorious, Seattle-worthy overcast skies, eagerly awaiting the coming rain. With my favorite seasons just edging their way in, and the trees about to turn, it’s time to breathe some life back into Arboreality.
Over the past month I have been enjoying much of the life under the trees – most especially the wildflowers, many of which are still new to me. I’ve also been smitten with the katydids, praying mantis, lightning bugs, cicadas, butterflies, and other wonderful insects which have enjoyed the summer swell and will soon have to retreat for the cold months ahead.
I will have many new things to share with you in coming months, particularly the Eastern autumn (which will be new to me), and the many nuts, fruits, and other trappings of fall which have already begun to make their appearance. In today’s image, you see some ripening wild cherries from a tree down in the field near the woods.
If you’re looking for more fun with trees, today is the Festival of the Trees 3 at Burning Silo. I wasn’t able to share anything this month, but I will be hosting in December, so stay tuned! If you want to learn more, visit the Festival of the Trees blog.
Also, thank you to everyone for the well-wishes, and for visiting over the past month in my absence. I have much blog-catch-up to do at your respective blogging homes, and will be breathing some life back into Brainripples soon as well. Have a wonderful weekend folks!
