As I stood painting this piece
I couldn't help but be awed by
these marvelous trees.
They have stood the test of time.
Encircled by development and
its accompanying pressures these towering
remnants of a very specialized ecosystem
still evoke the grandeur of nature.
This copse of Garry Oaks, perhaps more
than one hundred years old,
are an amazing testament to
the resilience of nature.
I hope these wonderful grandmothers
of the meadow can
go at least one hundred more...
