My friend tree-in-front-of-my-flat (namely beech) has day by day less leaves. It prepares itself for the winter, for the stand-by mode until the first springy sunny days will show up.
It is amazing how the leaves change color every day, I could look at it for hours. How many greens, yellows and browns there are!
My friend stands there whatever the weather looks like, whatever the season it is, growing at its own pace, in harmony with Nature.
That’s it, in harmony with Nature. That’s the spirit.
