Ana in front of some neighborhood woods.

Since I first arrived in Greensboro, I have been fascinated by the trees. I live in Panama City, Panama and we don’t have so many trees there. The ones I see always have leaves, because in Panama we don’t have seasons like in North Carolina. The only difference between summer and winter is that in winter we have rain all day long.
What I like so much about the trees here are that they don’t have leaves now. Seeing the sky through their branches is my favorite thing about them. I like the different shapes of the branches; it makes them more interesting. Also, I enjoy that I’m able to see the entire form of the tree. For me, it’s as if I am looking at a painting.
