Observations on Trees

We were on the road this weekend traveling to and from New York state for Mike's family Christmas party.  When I wasn't crocheting I had fun observing the now leafless trees.

Some of them are so beautifully balanced and look like majestic kings or queens of the forest.

Some, usually due to the intervention of man, are anything but symmetrical with one side butchered of its beauty to allow power or phone lines ease of passage.

Others have become gracefully intertwined with their neighbors. One for all against whatever nature has to throw at them.

Then there are the ones that grow straight and true towards the heavens above.

But, let us not forget the older arthritic trees that have withstood the ravages of time and still stand proudly awaiting whatever else life has in store for them.

All have their beauty and a lesson we can learn if only we take the time to do so.
