Join Getting Arboreal

Julie has a wonderful blog called Land of Lost Luggage

She's got a cool collaboration going on - pick a tree - any tree- your favorite tree- or a tree you'd like to become acquainted with! In photographs, Julie wants us to follow the changes in that chosen tree, from summer to fall, and winter to spring.

Kinda neat, huh?
Got to her link above for the exact details, but get out there and take some pix, before the trees start to change - time is running out!!!

I chose the mighty oak (at least I'm pretty sure it's an oak - it's definitely mighty!!! I will have to look it up and be sure!!!)

A Forest Hymn
by Wm Cullen Bryant

..............Be it ours to meditate,
In these calm shades, thy milder majesty,
And to the beautiful order of the works
Learn to conform the order of our lives.


  1. I'm going to take a photo of the huge tree right behind our home..It is Oak as well. I think this tree must have been here before this country was founded..but it is frightfully close to the house.


  2. Grand and majestic!! Great choice.

  3. Brilliant choice of a solid tree, great project!

  4. Here it is the 12th and I am just reading this post, oh woe is me! But I gotta tell you this is a great post and a great idea for a great project. Now to make a note on my calendar for next spring, or maybe January, or maybe right now. Must think this thru, any ideas? Lennie

  5. Just a reminder that the Getting Arboreal: A Nature Collection is up for an update next week. Try to make a post with both your original tree photo and your new tree photo and leave me a comment so I can update the links. Hope to see you then!

  6. It's the final arboreal week...stop by so we can see your tree!
