Yes, I live in Chicagoland, and no, this photo was not taken last summer. Those aren’t artificial leaves, either. This is a real, living tree.
One of the perks of working in a large building with glass ceilings and room for trees.
These trees just might keep me from finally, after 45 years of Chicago winters, going winter-time mad.
On days like today, where the temps started below freezing and the sun only shown for about an hour early in the morning (following a stretch of cloudy, gloomy days), I wish I could move my desk out under the grove of six trees I’m standing under here… out in what is known as “the atrium”, under little halogen suns. But I’m stuck in Building B, so I took a picture instead.
Only sixty-six days until spring, in case you too were wondering.
