I simply couldn’t help myself…
Last fall this tree next to my home turned the most vibrant yellow I had ever seen. What I loved about this eye-catching foliage was that it had a shape, that every time I walked past it, it conjured very vivid imagery for me…
Yep, you guessed it: BIG BIRD!
So, having a little fun with this tree, I used it’s natural shape and color to re-create our big yellow feathered friend who is still alive and well to this day.
Time has passed since I took the “fun foto”. We’ve gone through the Fall Equinox, the Winter Solstice, and now, we welcome the Spring Equinox with all its green glory. This beautiful tree has taken me through the seasons with artistry and grace. Now, as I walk past, it mirrors the vibrance and newness that symbolizes the majesty of spring. Its leaves are delicate and shiny; not yet tattered by the elements of wind and heat that accompany the summer months.
I am a conscious observer of the nuances that usher in the changing seasons, but this photo allows me a visual–a snapshot in time and a reminder to see the EXTRAORDINARY within the ORDINARY.
Thank you, changing seasons….OH, and thank you, Big Bird!
