Yes It Is Winter And I Like The Trees Naked

 

                                                                                                                                                                    I love naked trees!                                    

 

This is what I see when out showing my listings...Naked trees!

 

                                                                                 Naked Trees in Baltimore HomeRome Realty

 

Just look at the character of these trees. You can see the strength, you can see the skeleton, you can see the trunk, even the age. I think nature is the best artist!

When they are in full flower or covered with leaves... all this strength is hidden.  

Most people think trees are much prettier in the spring and summer. To them, bare trees are cold, dark, and lifeless. They do not see the natural beauty in the bareness or the promise that lies within the rough peeling bark. I see potential and promise.. that even in the darkest days of winter there is hope and life persists.

 

There are plenty of people who do not agree with me. My best friend Karen is one. 

She really does not tolerate winter... not the landscape, the lack of sunshine, not the darker shorter days or the chilly temperatures.

Karen does not like hates winter but it does not stop us from being BFF!

How about you?

Do you see beauty in naked trees?

Good evening Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland ,

I clicked on the link and you have a special friend to think of you! I always like flowering trees and budding plants..I grew up in upstate N.Y. and loved the winter growing up..now after 36 years living in Austin..I've grown accustom to warmer weather:).

I have to say I'm clearly in the Karen camp on the issue of winter, but I still appreciate the character of naked trees. It's when we can access the health and well being of our trees to see what might need trimming before spring.

Dorie Dillard I do have a special friend in Karen. I wish I could make winter disappear for her. Keep enjoying Austin!

Here in Florida we do have many varieties of trees that loose all of their leaves and are bare in the winter as well but not as many of course. I always enjoy trees at all stages and seasons. Best wishes for a happy healthy and most prosperous 2018.

Margaret,

We too have naked trees, not as many as you do, but I do find myself admiring them, they are beautiful sculptures. A

Where we live once the tress drop their leaves we have less of a noise break with traffic. I have to go in the other direction despite the beauty.

I'm fond of trees in spring and autumn.  But, I like the way naked trees allow more light into my house in winter.

Good morning Margaret. I love to see the naked trees in winter. It improves my view. Enjoy your day!

I'm waiting for the last tree in my yard to "get naked" so I can call the landscaper to come get all the dead leaves. There are some stubborn leaves hanging on.

My mom always sat at my kitchen window in winter and remarked how much she loved looking up at the bare trees against the sky!  Happy 2018 Margaret!  Much love to you.

You have some very good points about the beauty and the strength of the trees and being able to see that better in winter.  Thanks for a new perspective! :)

I absolutely see the beauty and the cycle of life in naked trees.  It is a time for renewal when trees are naked so they can rebirth with new.  It is all good ... I love it all ...even when I may complain about the cold ... I still love it all.

Hi again, Margaret. I'm so glad I got to spend a day with you at Erica's 14th BaltiQWERT. She's an amazingly talented pianist. And to sit amongst the chorus singers is a real thrill - true "surround sound." I'm also glad I got to share the beautiful naked tree with you as we were leaving.
