When we show our respect for the other living things, they respond with respect for us.----Arapaho Proverb

The lush leaves of Summer and the exquisite Fall foliage tend to offer a certain 'modesty' to the trees,  literally cloaking them from sight.  And the attention given to those leaves is at the expense of never really getting to know the true essence of a tree.  In Winter, when completely devoid of leaves, one can see trees for who they really are and NOT merely for what they are wearing!

This is never more apparent then when a pale Winter sky and  snowcover combine to offer a perfect backdrop, highlighting every single trunk, branch and twig!

Their characters are as unique and diverse as our own human ones, if you take the time to look. Like this friendly face!

Whether alone......

or in denizens, their individual 'nature' shines through.

So take a careful look around this Winter and notice the 'personalities' of the trees either in your own 'neck of the woods' OR even in your own backyard!  

And don't forget to ENJOY the magnificent gift of Winter!!!!
