#TreeSquares 22: Eastern Winter Trios

Less than two weeks to go of #TreeSquare now, but it is still absolutely fine to join in the fun. You could square daily for the remainder of the month or just pop in occasionally between now and the 31st with your trees. The only absolute rule for joining in with Squares is that your photograph must be square in shape! Although I’d love it if you had a moment to also explore the galleries – here’s part one of the first and here’s part two.

In this month’s square’s challenge I will start at home, which is Prescott, AZ and spiral farther and farther from home to share different tree from my travels. Today is also Thursday Trios at the blogging home of my friend Mama Cormier.

Eastern Trios

In March 2018, we had signed up for an “all you can spend” tour with a timeshare company that took us to Tennessee and North Carolina with the caveat to see the Biltmore Estate. If you are suffering from heat exhaustion today, this will be a great post to view.

The three day trip started out with a mild walk in the woods across a quaint wooden bridge.

Trio Stretch – two tire lanes and a center lane and three horizontal rails of the fence on either side.

The snow-studded Smokey Mountains looked pretty in the distance. We expected and depended on snow in the mountains even in March in California.

Another trio stretch. There are three large trees in the foreground of the picture and three bushes, the same height in front of the window. Can you find more trios. They are obscure, but I can stretch it to three more trios.
two sets of trios of windows caked with new snow

But the weather changed overnight. Even though I grew up in Indiana, super cold weather in California was an infrequent barely freezing for a few days in December or January. This was March and we expected a little bit of spring.

We walked carefully across the parking lot to our tour bus that would take us to the Biltmore Mansion in North Carolina, only about an hour and a half away.

Three open windows at the Biltmore.

My camera lens was not dirty, well it might have been, but also the snow spit at us through the windows.

Now don’t you feel cooler? Have a great weekend coming up and get ready with your Public Art posts. Tomorrow is Cee’s turn with PPAC #6.

Hi, I'm Marsha Ingrao, a retired educator and wife of a retired realtor. My all-consuming hobby is blogging and it has changed my life. My friends live all over the world. In November 2020, we sold everything and retired to the mile-high desert of Prescott, AZ. We live less than five miles from the Granite Dells, four lakes, and hundreds of trails with our dog, Kalev, and two cats, Moji and Nutter Butter. Vince's sister came with us and lives close by. Every day is a new adventure.
