Here is a picture that I took last Thursday:
And a closer look:
And even closer:
OK, now compare the same tree with one taken in the spring of 2009, doesn’t it look so much brighter?
If I would have taken a picture this year of the entire tree, you would see that the bottom half looks mostly dead. I sure hope it comes back. It died off a few years ago and came back, but it took awhile.
I did a painting back a year or so of one of my mimosa trees. Maybe I should do another one; they are a really nice subject for painting. Well, not this morning. Yep, you guessed it, am going to take my wife and go off to the flea market.
You all have a good day now, you hear?
