I Talk to the Trees

I seem to have found myself on the road again. Not sure exactly why this happens as often as it does. I’m used to driving Interstate 5 in summer and in fall; I’ve done it less in springtime. On this trip, lots of orchards along the roadside were in flashy bloom. In some, all the trees were shot with color. In many, like the one above, only certain rows of trees were in bloom. Other rows either hadn’t started yet or were already done blooming and had grown leaves. Always something new to learn along the way.

The schmutz in the sky is actually bugs on the windshield—another feature of driving through farm country in the spring. Or, actually, almost any time of year, depending on time of day.

There’s a long, complicated story about why I’m taking pictures of oak trees, but I’ll save it for another day. For today you just get the picture.
