arbor licious

this fabulous photo was taken by my hubby. it reminds me of a quote by the amazing scottish novelist and poet:

it is not so much for its beauty
that the forest makes a claim upon men's hearts,
as for that subtle something,
that quality of air that emanates from old trees,
that so wonderfully changes and renews a weary spirit.
- robert louis stevenson

arbor day is a nationally-celebrated observance that encourages tree planting and care. this year it will be celebrated on april 24th.


  1. that is a ridiculously cool photo!

  2. Someone should go back to that place and photograph the tree now that the leaves are back. Wouldn't it be great to see the before and after?

  3. gorgeous photograph!
    and a wonderful poem.
