Susan Ogden Thoreau

I frequently tramped eight or ten miles through the deepest snow to keep an appointment with a beech-tree, or a yellow birch, or an old acquaintance among the pines.

Henry David Thoreau

I think that I shall never see
A billboard lovely as a tree.
Perhaps, unless the billboards fall,
I'll never see a tree at all.

Ogden Nash, "Song of the Open Road"

I love to paint and photograph trees so I look for them constantly. Each is always unique. This is my favorite recent find. It's definitely a Susan tree.
