I write a letter to a tree


Dear Japanese Maple In Our Front Yard,

Way to go, tree. I am impressed by your ability to hold on to your leaves through the first frosts and early cold. And then, when the other trees are bare naked, or clinging to a few crispy brown leaves, you turn on the color. And what color it is! I’m not even going to try to name it. I will just take a picture and share it with my friends. Thank you for being beautiful today.

Love, Amy
