Love for Aspen Trees
My favorite tree is the Quaking Aspen with its beautiful white bark and fluttering leaves. I'm sure there are different varieties of the tree---when I was a child, my sisters and I shared a bedroom on the second floor. Outside our window was a small grove of quaking aspens, which made the most wonderful sound in a breeze. As fall nears, our area is still hot and dry. The trees aren't changing yet, and sometimes they don't make it before winter arrives. These beautiful aspens grow in a park next to a river that doesn't hold much water right now. I'm joining with Mona's Floral Love/Green Goodbye.
