Favorite Fall Tree

Out of the hundreds, maybe thousands? of trees on our property, this one is my absolute favorite in the fall.  It is one of the last to change color and it undergoes a daily transformation for about a week  before all the leaves are gone.  Today it was yellow gold,  tomorrow who knows what it will be.

It was shaped by an ice storm or maybe a tornado but it forms an arch  or sorts there in the middle of the woods.  Underneath its shade is where yellow jackets build their nests in late summer and Hook so foolishly digs them up.

It has been a great holiday weekend.  Peaceful and restful, no shopping or mall, just hanging out on the farm.

Can you believe this is the last week of November?  In just a few short weeks we will say goodbye to 2018 and hello to 2019.  Make this week special, be kind, be extra kind, show love  and share joy.


  1. Such a kind post! The gold tree is glowing.

  2. Nice little tree... All our trees are bare by now except my crabapple tree that still has an abundance of red clusters of crabapple but no leaves. In the spring, it usually covered with pink blossoms.
    I hope you have a great week.
    I think every tree has it's own special beauty.
    Hugs, Julia

  3. What a bright spot in your day. That tree is lovely. We do need to make the most of the last remaining days of the year. Happy Monday!
