Took a walk in the woods yesterday afternoon. Stopped dead in my tracks by this tree.
Always on the lookout for one of nature’s surprises. Almost missed this one.
Split bark cedar tree with shafts of light illuminating her unusual essence of colors, curves and twists, and peeling bark. Even the brush which touched her was beautiful.
Soon the leaves turn from green to brown and will drop away.
Ah, winter causes her to hibernate, but not to die. She is too wild.
Spring will come again, as will new growth and a summer full of foliage.
This cedar lives on for whatever purpose the Creator has ordained.
I count myself fortunate to have seen her in this captivating light.
