We’re Meant to have Seasons; A Lesson from Trees

While we were living in our rental home we got to have a huge oak tree right in the front yard. It was beautiful. It has been there so long that the rope or the homemade swing is fully embedded into its branch. It created amazing shade in the summer and a slight cover forContinue reading “We’re Meant to have Seasons; A Lesson from Trees”
