Renew your wonder.

Hanging Decorations and Setting a Feast – As a former professional tree-climber working in a large city, I have a fondness for the Chinese Pistache. With such spectacular foliage and beautiful clusters of fruit, they have a firm place in urban landscaping. The fruit, once it turns purple later, is a favorite of many birds, although inedible for humans. And yes, as its name suggests, it is related to the pistachio.
Beautiful remains – A lone wooden fence post in the middle of the meadow acts as hunting perch and dinner table for the raptors in the area. Watching the frost melt into the clearest sparkling water as the sun hit, then drifting off as mist made me appreciate just how many moments of exquisite beauty happen all the time. All we need to do is choose to direct our attention toward them.
