I have had so many Square ideas swirling around in my head including horizon, signs, opposites, seasons and joy. All have their merit, and I know all would be fabulously transformed by yourselves into squares. So it is more than likely at least one of these will appear in a future squares. However for July I fancy a change from a word with multiple meanings, and there is one word that won’t leave my head.
We had such fun with roofs and flowers, I thought why not try squaring trees. They can, after all, take centre stage in your square or as they were on Tuesday and again today they can be the backdrop. Maybe you could start with one tree and increase the number day by day until you get to thirty one trees, or maybe you could focus on just one tree and share a different part of the same tree each day. They don’t even need to be real trees!
Other tree ideas include squaring a different species every day, photographing their shadows or even hugging one in your local park. I’ve counted up the trees in our garden, and could easily square, although maybe not hug, a different tree every day in July.
Hopefully by now you will have realised from my tree ramblings it is totally up to you how you include trees in your July squares. Some of you may recall from a Portuguese tree post I shared a year or two ago, I have a thing about trees. No wonder I can’t wait to see your trees. However if a daily tree square sounds daunting, it is okay to join weekly or even just pop in occasionally with your trees. The frequency of your squares entirely depends on you and your blog. The only absolute rule for joining in with Squares from 1st July is that your photograph must be square in shape!
