Christmas Lights, Candlelight, and Moonlight

Taking up Becky’s January Square Challenge of LIGHT. 

Not my house, but it is so inviting and the candles are flickering along the sidewalk.

And yes, that is the moon up at the top of the photo.

The temperature dropped to 32 and the lights shine in the darkness, making winter beautiful.

Becky says (via Cee’s Photography post of a lighthouse at Twilight)

I’m proposing our January squares are filled with words ending in light that means one or more of the following; sunlight, floodlights, firelight, skylights, candlelight, sidelights, starlight, footlights, moonlight, streetlights, torchlight, taillights, gaslight, headlights, or, as I have today, twilight – whether that be the astronomical, nautical or civil twilight. And feel free to find your own _____light, there are more than 50 words which end in light!

The Tulip Tree Out Front

The Tulip Tree out front was slow to change color this year. Liriodendron is in the Magnolia family

l’m told they grow up to sixty feet tall, which I probably won’t see, but it’s a lovely tree.

I lost my 90+ year old Sycamore in 2002. I’d gotten a second opinion that it had to be taken down. a living thing that had come to the end of its life.  I filled out a request for a new tree  and the city planted this one.

It’s growing straight up it seems to me.  The sky was blue today and made a perfect backdrop for the changing leaves.

The tree on Tuesday

Lovely shaped leaves two weeks ago.
