A bud about to emerge was sitting in a fine ray of sunlight. A water droplet from an earlier rainfall clings to it. If you look closely, you can see a tiny starburst shining from the water, making it a golden drop of sun.
This beautiful old tangle of roots sure look golden in the late-day sunshine.
It's nesting season, and this little cutie had a mouthful of golden bark in her mouth ready to augment her home. Squirrels sure can do a lot of damage to trees stripping them this way.
Before my younger son grew his hair long, he sported a spiky do for a while. This kind of reminds me of those days.
A rather large hole at the base of this tree. Do you suppose something lives in there?
I know it's not this guy. This is Jake, the golden lab and he lives on my street. He's as golden of heart as the name of the breed suggests.
A close up view of a broken branch. It appears to be oozing some sort of golden sap or something. Whatever it is, it caught my eye.
Last year's seeds were still clinging to this twig. They reminded me of golden wings.
I'll have more photos for you in a few days. Thanks always for stopping by.
