Good morning Challengers, welcome to day 21.
Yesterday when I was skating at the park, having the best day ever, fresh cold air, bright sunshine, skating...all my favourite things, I was thinking about this tree.
I friend once said when a tree is cut down in a neighbourhood, it leaves a mark, a sense that something is missing for a really long time, it's like loosing a friend. We used to have two big pine trees in our front yard, they were cut down 5 or 6 years ago, but on snowy mornings I still miss them.
Every year during the challenge I have a picture of a tree, often I have a picture of this tree. It's so big, I'm not sure the picture does it justice. It's like an old friend. You can see how the lowest branches are perfect for climbing. I'm sure my siblings and I all climbed it in our childhoods playing here in this park.
Today's photo prompt: do you have a tree you love, one that if it was gone you would miss it. Is there a spot where a tree is missing that still looks empty to you? That's the photo prompt for today.
Until tomorrow, have an outdoorsy day.

Even though February was longer than usual this year, it felt like it went by faster, maybe it was the warm weather, with yesterday being the coldest day we had all month. Maybe just the busyness of it, maybe my kids are bigger now, I'm not struggling being shut indoors with Littles. Whichever it was I hope the challenge helped you get through the month too.
Until next year Challengers...have an outdoorsy day.
