The ball has dropped and the champagne has gone flat, but there’s still time to get your New Year off to a great start with some fine reading and photos at the 19th edition of The Festival of the Trees. This month’s host is Hoarded Ordinaries, a blog worth your time if only to discover what the author means by “Mundane Musings from a Collector of the Quotidian." There’s nothing ordinary about the stunning photos of a solstice tree at Frizzy Logic, Renaissance tree poetry at Via Negative, or “Read It and Weep,” a review of The Golden Spruce from sarala. Click around to find your own favorite entries.
If you enjoy this festival, check out past editions at the coordinating site for the Festival. And make plans to contribute your own tree-philic musings, quotidian or otherwise, to the next version at Ginko Dreams. Happy 2008!
