Each tree is an individual landscape.
Trees are often thought of as pieces of the 'landscape,' providing visual interest, shade or color. Trees, of course, fill these tasks admirably. They also provide valuable commodities: fruit, nuts, lumber, flavorings, coffee, medicinals, etc. But I feel compelled to look a little deeper and longer, from a different perspective -- and see that each tree is a 'landscape' unto itself with rivers of texture, canyons of color and pathways of mystery beckoning from its branches, buds, leaves, roots and bark.
