Upon arising this morning, I peeked out my window to see if there were any apricots on the ground. If there were, perhaps I could beat the squirrel to the harvest. Aha! YES! One there . . . but it was too nibbled. I left it for our faithful buddy to enjoy.
But while I was out there, I took a look up INTO the tree itself to see if I could see any fruits that might be ripe. Alas, no.
But while I was looking straight up into the inside of this huge and beautiful tree, I was reminded of a Georgia O’Keeffe painting, a lithograph of which hangs on one of our living room walls. It is called
THE LAWRENCE TREE
and yes, that is for D. H. Lawrence.

The more you study this unusual painting, the more interesting it will become.
This is the tree that inspired my brain this morning. Perhaps not as thought provoking as The Lawrence Tree, but a delight nonetheless.
