In subsequent months, I resolved to document the tree in all four seasons, beginning with this picture in the spring, which I tinted green in postprocessing. In retrospect, I'm not sure that was a good idea, but there it is.
I got this picture in the summer, with corn growing in the foreground.
Due to peculiar weather patterns, we didn't have much fall color, and I didn't get an autumn picture. Oh well, maybe next year, I thought.
Last week, I was sad to see that this is all that's left of the majestic old tree. Why it was taken down, I don't know, but I'll miss it.
