Trumpet Trees

I Spy Trumpet Trees

When we go on long drives I become entranced by the trees along the highway. I especially like to watch them in unpopulated areas and mark time as a forest of pines changes into a forest of oaks and back again. I am also amazed at the uniformity of these prestine woods. On a recent drive to Western Massachusetts I notices how the oaks looked like perfectly positioned horns in an orchestra. In my trance I think I could even hear them.

    • I think because I am obsessed with representing thing in nature I am always looking for patterns or how to simplify them. You will have to let me know if someday you see them though :)

  1. I find the tree changes on long drives fascinating, too! My geologist husband tells me it’s because the rocks underneath are different.
