Springing

As the earth wakes up from another winter, and I am intoxicated once again with my love for all things nature. Trees are blooming, flowers curl up from the ground and yawn their blossoms toward the sun. This cherry tree (bottom) greets me daily when I arrive home and always gives me a warm feeling; The little white flowers (above) live on a bush in front of my apartment...so lovely!

Soul Tree

I love this tree, and always look at it with admiration when I drive by. It must have been there hundreds of years; its trunk looks like 10 trees twisted together. Now, a housing development is being built around it. It's also a nature preserve, so they are thankfully sparing the tree. I had to go take some pictures in case a big ugly house is built in front of my soul tree...
