The Story of One Maple


[By Tina Koyama in Seattle] Our days of high winds and heavy rain did a number on many trees. When I walked around Green Lake today, I saw lots of newly bald trees as well as torn limbs strewn across the path.

I went to check out the same maple in my Seattle neighborhood that I’ve been watching and sketching: Just a few yellow leaves are barely hanging on today, Oct. 27. This is probably the last time I’ll sketch it this year, but if I remember next spring, I’ll continue this story of one maple.

Previous sketches are shown below.
