a closer look.

I don't know much about trees. Except that I really like them. A lot. I frequently find myself distracted by trees while driving. It's dangerous, I suppose, but I just find them so fascinating and beautiful. Or ugly. I like ugly trees, too, even though I rarely find them ugly. On days when I've lost perspective, and feel "blah," or on lousy mornings when the world seems exceptionally dull...sometimes I'll see a perfect tree, and forget everything for a moment. Perhaps it's a funny little round one. Or a fluffy pink one. Or a really really tall skinny one. Or a crooked Dr. Seuss tree...(those are the best). As sappy as this little story may's true. Trees have brought a smile to my face when nothing else could. *sigh*

Thus...this homage to trees.

When you look at some trees very, very closely, you may see interesting pod-like things. I have no idea what they are. But I like them.
