Picture a tree, from every season, and from every angle. These
wondrous beings give shade and shelter. They protect, and bring

From the Author
"I have always loved trees, and spent much of my childhood climbing
them, drawing them, playing under and around them. Trees have
personalities and moods, and nothing tells the story of the
changing seasons like a tree. Over the course of morning dog walks
in the Don Valley I started to think about a series of images of
trees that would represent each passing month. Choosing images to
express the playfulness of branches and clouds, the character of an
old tree, or the explosion of spring was like putting together a
puzzle, or drawing a poem." -Barbara Reid
