Out of sheer lack of creativity I caved and asked my four year old what I should blog about this morning. His answer....
I found this answer to be very insightful and interesting. A lot can be said about trees. They provide oxygen and shade, they are big and beautiful, sometimes they even smell good. Oh and lets not forget that they provide the PERFECT place to build little houses in. Tree houses rock!
My BFF from high school was nick named Tree. (And sadly...12 years later that is still what we call her)
Then we discussed what time of the year trees are our favorite. I threw out fall - when the trees are red and orange, spring - when the trees are bright green, and winter - when the trees are bare.
My favorite is a toss up between fall and spring. I love driving down the road and seeing the lush color coming from all the leaves. When I was young we used to go on "Color Tours" as our Sunday outing. (ya know ... before gas cost a bazillion dollars a gallon) Still, after a LONG winter with absolutely no color to my tress I find myself longing for that bright green foliage. So much so that I was more than happy to travel to NC a few years ago just to see green!
But my awesome four year old said, "I like it in the winter when the trees are covered in snow."
I hadn't even thrown out that gorgeous option!
So now that autumn is falling upon us, what is YOUR favorite time of year when it comes to trees?
(Hey...at least he didn't ask me to post about butter!)
