Third Week of Fall: Shoot Leaves Backlit

101211-honey-locust-blog.jpg

This is the third week in my "2011 Fall Trees" project. This week I posted two gingko pictures, one that had some yellow leaves and another with an awesome Love Shack birdnest. I also found some nice color on the local kousa dogwood, and some color in the cherry blossom tree, and got an interesting shot of a forest pansy redbud before the bright yellow color will arrive in a few weeks, but my favorite shot of the week was the honey locust during a rain storm (above). I'll remember that one because my son held the umbrella, hooking his arm in mine. Tree projects are good for my soul.  Click here for the third week of fall's pictures.

Want to see the fall pictures as they're posted each day? Friend me on Facebook with a note about your interest in trees. 

Remember, tree-related articles are now posted on my photography blog, under the Julie's Trees category.

Come on over!

Peace, jules

2nd Week: More Green

100211-sweetgum-blog.jpg 

This is the second week in my "2011 Fall Trees" project including pictures of a sweetgum in fall, my armstrong maple, my October Glory red maple (both of while are still fully green, by the way), buds on my Red Sunset red maple (that tree's ready for spring already!), a sassafras leaf plus some beautiful sunrise bronze from my Royal Red maple.  Click here for the second week's worth of pictures.

Remember, tree-related articles are now posted on my photography blog, under the Julie's Trees category.

Come on over!

Peace, jules

While the Tree Grower's Diary has been in existence since 1996 (as a notebook) and since 1999 (at Coffeedrome), this new, independent site was launched on April 4, 2006. The blog posts here go from April 2006 through 2007. After that, all Tree Growers Diary blog posts appear in my main blog, the City of Nouns. Click here to go straight to the tree category.
