Happy Arbor Day!

I learned this morning from Backyard and Beyond that today is Arbor Day. Since I am in British Columbia, surrounded by magnificent forest, it seems a fine occasion to celebrate the day.

The forest here is dense and layered. This time of year, leaves on the deciduous trees are still pale against the darker needles of the evergreens.

The many shades of green are mesmerizing.

Sometimes you glimpse islands and water through the trees.

Even the downed trees and stumps are covered in many shades of green made by moss and lichen.

  2. Yes, finally, finally! we get a taste of spring in New York. The cherry trees are in full bloom. The plums are almost done. The cypress is leafed out with tender green growth.

  4. Gorgeous photos. Thanks for sharing them. I needed a little walk through the trees today (since my actual walk through the trees was hindered by people trimming trees).
