Looking Back

A year ago today was the last day I gave oboe lessons in person. I had three students here in my house. We had no masks yet, but all my students were used to going first to wash their hands: I’d been having them do that for years.

Here, have some Thursday images, which are from even further back in time:

Amazing Color

I don’t know if readers remember, but a few weeks back I posted an image of a tree with great leaf color. Since then I’ve walked past that tree again. And the change between April 19 (first two photos) and 27 is pretty amazing. Just today someoneĀ in a plant ID group asked for the ID of this tree, so now I know it is the Fagus sylvatica, also called the European beech or tri-color beech. I call it astounding beech.
