Trees can look quite pretty when they are blooming in the Springtime, elegant when they are fully leafed in the Summer, and breathtaking when they are colorfully plumed in the Autumn. But the bare trees of winter have a certain charm to them as well… especially when they resemble a complex, wiry grid like the tree in the photo above does. And the best thing of all about naked trees is that there’s nowhere for their arboreal inhabitants to hide from the prying eyes of their human admirers below. If I’d have taken this picture in July rather than January, there’s no way I’d have ever seen that squirrel rocketing up that diagonal branch like a missile being launched from the trunk.
So this week, you not only get a cute Saturday Squirrel, but some aesthetically pleasing branch art to go along with it!
Have a great weekend everyone!
