Ponderosa Pine

Trees are for me a visual anchor to the earth, a tie to the world of nature that spans the generations. In last summer’s 105° temperature, these tall pines shaded the earth beneath them as they have since the time of the Civil War, and in the sub-zero cold of winter they draw one’s eyes up toward the sky and provide a visual link to tie earth and sky together.

Earlier I had planned to decorate this young Ponderosa for the season, but soon found it had decorations far better than anything I could provide.
