Stream of Consciousness Saturday – Tree
Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “tree.” Use the word “tree” or write about a tree. Any kind of tree. Enjoy!
What’s to say about a tree? I like trees a lot. There are so many kinds and all are beautiful. We have one tree in our yard. It’s a fruitless Mulberry. It has large green leaves in the summer, and they turn a pretty yellow in the fall.
That’s what they are looking like right now, yellow. There’s still a lot of leaves on the branches, but lots have been falling, and with the crazy wind yesterday (67 mph gusts) a lot got blown off into the yard.
We had several elm trees in the yard of the house I grew up in. They were very tall. I’d climb up in the branches with a book to read lots of times. They are still there after all these years, and through lots of storms where the branches were broken. Out front we also had a mimosa with pink flowers, and a couple of big evergreen trees.
The tallest trees I’ve ever seen were the ones in the east TX forest, and the New Mexico forest. Those were pines I think.
As for Christmas trees, we used to get a real one. They smelled so good. Later we had a fairly large fake tree. Then later on we had a smaller fake tree we’d set on a table. We named him Charlie, and had this one many years. Then it got pretty raggedy looking after the cats kept chewing the branches.
Now we just have a teeny tiny fake one from the dollar store we set on a shelf. It goes in the closet later on, and keeps the little decorations on it. It only has a very few, plus my ghost lights. I’m not sure I’ll even put it out this year, though.
And that’s all I have to say about trees today.
Thanks for visiting! Peace ☮️
