Sycamore   Leave a comment

Well, a few days have passed with no wrecks, accidents, or crime.  You never know what’s going to happen next around here . . . oh, well.  It’s quiet today.  So far.

Here’s a pretty picture anyway.  When Marion and I rode yesterday on the Preserve, we were  struck by the beauty of the sun shining through the spring leaves of this sycamore.  It reminded me of green jewels — not emerald, but peridot.

I suspect, from the way the multiple trunks are growing, that this group grew from the stump of an ancient fallen tree.  In any case, they make a beautiful picture, while the leaves are clean and gleaming.  Later, dust will dull their color, but they’re wonderful now.
