As I walked along the pathway, I glanced towards the river … and stopped at the sight of this.
Branches? Vines? Another tree? Wrapped around a bigger trunk.
For some reason, I thought of snakes, maybe a boa constrictor, wrapping itself around the trunk, and slowly squeezing ….
I was a little fascinated, but repulsed at the same time. Maybe because I thought of snakes …
I wanted to take more pictures, from different angles, trying to capture something different. But I decided against staying, and hurried on, slightly perturbed, I don’t know why.
Does this evoke anything in you?
The leaves are finally starting to change colour around us, and I’ve always looked forward to the changing of the season just to see nature in its beauty and glory.
But thanks to Sandy, the trees are mostly bare, and the leaves flattened, mashed and in pieces.
And so I’ll content myself with looking through photos from years past.
I wanted to leave these in the front yard, but somebody thought we should rake it all up …
No pumpkin-picking trips this year …
There’s always next year.
From the Art Takes Times Square artists – a sketch of a tree on the bag.
It took the artist less than fifteen minutes to draw/sketch this. The finished bags were free; you just had to sign up to get one. Nobody seemed to want it, so I asked for it.
I could always use another tote or carry-all.
I saw this tree and immediately thought of broccoli.
Imagine eating all that?
The Pinus densiflora “Umbraculifera” (also called Tanyosho Pine).
Taken at the NY Botanical Garden.
I call it the “Umbrella Tree”. Will have to go back and see what it looks like in full bloom.
