This month the featured pictures have been of trees. I do love trees. The way they stand strong with roots that submerge down deep into the ground for the water that nurtures and takes good care of the leaves, bark, and branches we see. They are cool to sit under during summer and resilient in the midst of the winter storms. We carve our names in them, build houses in their branches, and climb them in a tireless fashion mostly as kids. And in the part of the States in which I grew up (New England) we watch with delight as their leaves change color and fall to the ground every Autumn. That's why I selected trees for the January Featured Photo. Starting tomorrow we kick off February with a little creature that makes a tree its home!
