Cold Tree

“A beautiful form has as much life at one season as another.” ~ Henry David Thoreau.

The distinctive cone shape of the Dawn Redwood (Metasequoia glyptostroboides) is actually kind of similar to the distinctive cone shape of the Bald Cypress (Taxodium distichum). Both species grace Brooklyn Bridge Park and both appear “bald” this time of year. And, in the cold, battened down — or maybe that was just me, being iced in the cheek by the wind off the water.

    Yes, it is beautiful. Right now my patch of woods is not because of all the crossways trees from the derecho in June. Rather spoils the symmetry.
