I taught last night, so it wasn't that early.  But I vowed I'd
paint and draw all day.  So I did. First thing -- just a sketch of
the backyard.  I see this view out my bedroom window.
My neighbour has a beautiful tree he grew from seed.
Last year part of it came down in a storm that produced
intensive winds, knocking large trees down all over the

But this huge beauty has survived and all of us who get
to see it every day are so glad. In the current heat it 
provides a canopy of shade at the back of our yard and
I sit on the bench against our garage and watch the birds
fly in and out of its majesty.

Have a loving your neighbourhood trees day.
