Groves of Aspen Trees

Friday, November 09, 2018
I had never been to Central Oregon before during the fall season, and oh, my was it a treat. Quaking aspen trees everywhere, growing in groves, with bright yellow leaves and smooth, white bark. Perfectly stunning. I've always dreamed of having a grove of Quaking aspen trees in my backyard, but unfortunately, we already have a lot of trees on our lot. Did you know that they are native to Oregon? One of my favorite trees in the Willamette Valley and beyond.

Black Butte Ranch, Central Oregon
"Each day holds a surprise. But only if we expect it can we see, hear, or feel it when it comes to us. Let's not be afraid to receive each day's surprise, whether it comes to us as sorrow or as joy It will open a new place in our hearts, a place where we can welcome new friends and celebrate more fully our shared humanity."  -- Henri Nouwen
