The leaves are still hanging onto the branches. Tomorrow it will be December, Christmas is 25 days away….and the leaves are still on the trees.
Seasons run a bit odd here in Texas….due to the warmer temperatures. Sometimes you just have to decorate for the holidays and trust the calendar is right.

Sometimes you just have to get on your belly to get the shot you want!
Last March I posted several pictures of my Texas Red Bud Tree. The tree was full of beautiful pink blooms.

The rest of the summer the tree stood proudly and showed off its lovely green leaves.
But now it is time for the leaves to fall away…so the tree will stand bare until next spring when the cycle begins again.
I find it interesting that I did not find the tree intriguing enough to take pictures when it was full of leaves.
Trees are such a representation of life….when things are drastically different (beginning of life – end of life) we pay attention. But when things are OK, not crazy, not new, not dying we tend to not pay much attention.
I am in Dayton Ohio this weekend – my hometown.
This morning my friend Corey and I toured two historic cemeteries. Both have headstones dating back to the early 1800 and both are the final resting places for famous Daytonians like Erma Bombeck and The Wright Brothers.
I of course didn’t take pictures of the famous headstones…

I took the pictures that caught my eye….
