Colonial Parkway – February 2018
Even though I am not a big fan of February, which I know is not unique to me, there is one thing I look forward to on rainy, cold, gray days that gets me through the dreariest parts of the month. It is trees, randomly scattered throughout the woods, just off the roads all around here — trees that did not shed leaves during the fall. As winter comes closer and closer to spring, their leaves turn a light paper brown that reflect rain water and stand out from the dull, leafless background and sky. The Colonial Parkway, from Jamestown to Yorktown, has thousands of these trees that on a wet day signal that spring is just around the corner – Rebirth.
