Well technically I took these photos today, not four days ago, but I figure we’re still close enough to the date that they count as green Solstice trees! 😂
In fact, the idea for doing this didn’t come until I went out in our yard yesterday and took some pictures of the five usual spots in our yard that I’ve been taking for a year or two now. Then last night when I was starting to put this post together, it occurred to me to check back to see if I had the same five shots in December, which is when I found my post Snowy Solstice Trees. Since the shots didn’t all match up, I decided to go back out today and try to recreate the shots from six months ago, for a bit of a Solstice comparison post.
Before I get on with the pictures, a quick shout out to my blogging friend Parul to say thank you for hosting this awesome blog hop every couple of weeks. If you want to join in the Tree love blog hop fun, it’s really easy – here’s the description from her latest post today, called #ThursdayTreeLove – 110:
Thursday Tree love is a photo feature hosted on this blog on every 2nd and 4th Thursday of a month. The next edition will go live on July 8, 2021. If you would like to play along, post a picture of a tree on your blog, tell me where did you spot the tree and link it back to this post.
If you don’t see the pingback, please leave a link to your post in my comments section. Please make sure that your post’s link is showing up on this latest edition. I will link your posts on my blog in the next edition and spread some love. Let’s come together to appreciate the beautiful nature around us.
As for these photos, they were taken in my Durham, NH yard with my Nikon which was affixed to my handy dandy tripod. All were resized, then cleaned up a bit with PicMonkey. Seven of the shots are from the post in December, and seven are from earlier today.
Speaking of earlier today, while I was out in the yard I got another shot of our landlady’s memorial tree that I featured a couple weeks ago. This time, I have the garage as the backdrop, so you can get a better sense of the overall growth in the past month or so. I just edited it into the post, but figured I’d include it here too.
Now on with the green (and snowy) Solstice tree photos!
Green Solstice Trees on June 24th, 2021.
Whatever season you’re in, happy Thursday Tree Love, everyone!
