live oak from Rebecca in the WoodsThe Festival of the Trees 57 will take us to the blog home of regular contributor Rebecca of Rebecca in the Woods. If the Festival of the Trees is partly an exercise in attentiveness and awareness, then we’re sure to be at home among Rebecca’s thoughtful, observant pages where she reports from the dunes of the Georgia coast.

Rebecca is keeping the theme open this month for all things tree. As an environmental educator, her words and images read like friendly invitations to view the natural world through the unencumbered perspectives of youth. When you’re out among the trees this month, try donning a funky pair of shades, or walking the opposite direction on your daily paths, or sitting for a while in the same place, and see what you notice differently. Who and what else share the trees where you live?

Blog your observations and send us the links! Ready for more tree fun? Contact us to volunteer to host an edition of the Festival of the Trees at your blog.
