A leaf of our bald cypress tree rested on the deep snow last Sunday. The snow has now been washed away by a day of rain and winds. For more Straight Out of the Camera photos, visit Murrieta365.

Signs of Times: Seasonal Shifts

Here’s a leaf of my bald cypress, photo taken this November.

Gray Catbird in our Bald Cypress Tree, photo taken July 2009
The same bald cypress tree was photographed in July, with a gray catbird enjoying the branches.

My oak leaf hydrangea is almost all red.

It was much greener in October.

One neighbor’s tall maple was displaying yellow leaves in October.

Here’s the same tree, back in January 2009. I looked an hour ago, and the tree is almost bare again, soon to look as it did in January.
