Last year I watched this tree shed all its leaves until there was just one left. And finally that also fell. Leaving it bare.
This spring the tree started getting leaves a lot earlier than expected. And I saw the first leaf and then the next and then the whole tree was full in a few weeks.
Today I spotted the first fall colors. Soon the the entire tree will be pink and amber. Adding a whole lot of color and warmth to our backyard. And then it will shed. And nothing will be left. Back to where we started.
Does this cycle mean something to you? It means a lot to me because I only started observing these trends and seasons after I left consulting. It is so beautiful to observe these natural cycles. You learn to be patient, thankful and hopeful, all at once 🙂
