An Old Juniper Tree



I don't know if this picture makes any sense, I mean if it's OK or just a picture of a really tired tree. Sometimes I feel like  this too, a little bit tired around the edges. 

The night following the spring pictures I posted, it was 24 F here in the canyon. I don't know how the trees fared, I hope they are OK. That's what happens in the mountains. Snow can come as late as June here. 

We are going on a road trip (as we like to call it) today. Just down to Bakersfield, but for the Wrangler, not for me. It needs to be serviced. The battery on my camera just ran out so I'll leave it at home, darned..... I usually keep some extra, but, not this time.

  1. Hi Inger .. I love the gnarled twisted branches of your Juniper tree - it's full of life I expect ... probably in better shape than we are!

    Hope the car is fixed, battery charged and ready for the Easter weekend ... cheers Hilary

  2. That looks to me like a healthy juniper that sprawling - they spread out like that when the going gets tough in order to survive - "dropping" unnecessary branches and promoting the strongest branches in order to catch sunlight for photosynthesis... kinda like us ;)

  8. I hate it when the battery dies on anything and I haven't got a replacement ready. (But especially my camera or a flashlight.)

  11. I love the gnarly tree! It's beautiful and suits the canyon, I'm sure. Those temperatures sure do dip, don't they! Hope you had a nice road trip today. :-) Debra

  15. I hope the road trip perks you right up, and you feel like a sapling.

  16. Dear Inger, I suspect you could write a poem about that tree that seems "tired" to you. The poet's in you. Peace.
