I am always happy out in nature. But I have a particular affection for trees.
I love being in a forest, and will lag behind everyone else snowmobiling as I take in the trees. I love texture, and trees have tons of that. Craggy bark, smooth bark, light bark, dark bark, curling bark. And leaves! Smooth, fringey, delicately shaped or large and bold, with varying shades of green. In the fall I am truly am a distracted driver when all the gorgeous burgundys, oranges and golds appear. The variety of trees living and growing side by side is a lesson in itself for us.
