BOTTOM OF THE LARGEST MONTEREY PINE IN THE BACK YARD. THERE ARE 4 TREES THAT HAVE GROWN TOGETHER.

I HAVE A LOVE HATE RELATIONSHIP WITH THESE BIG BEAUTIES. I LOVE THAT THEY REPRESENT STRENGTH, RESILIENCE AND BEAUTY. I LOVE THAT THEY REMIND ME OF THE PINE FORREST BACK HOME. THE SMELL IN THE SUMMER IS SWEET AND INTOXICATING. IT BRINGS BACK A FLOOD OF MEMORIES EVERY YEAR. I LOVE THAT WHEN IT GETS REALLY HOT, THE PINE CONES OPEN AND IT SOUNDS LIKE POPCORN POPPING IN THE CANOPY. THEY FILL MY SENSES DAILY WITH THEIR LUSH COLOR, THEIR DANCES ON THE WIND AND A CALMING PRESENCE. THEY GROUND ME TO THIS EARTH AND PUT IN PERSPECTIVE THE LARGER THINGS IN LIFE; LIKE DOING THE RIGHT THING AT THE RIGHT TIME, SHOWING KINDNESS AND RESPECT, THE IMPORTANCE OF DOING THE SMALL THINGS WHILE KNOWING I AM PART OF THE WHOLE AND I AM IMPORTANT.
I HATE THAT PROGRESS HAS SURROUNDED THIS LITTLE FORREST, CHANGING THE LANDSCAPE AND MAKING THESE BEAUTIFUL LIVING SENTINELS OBSOLETE.
