Gratitude for Wetlands and White Oaks

If trees could talk I would most want to speak to an old oak tree. I would ask the tree to tell me her story from the beginning. To tell me her secret for growing both standing taller and rooting deeper. For growing wiser with age.

An Oregon white oak tree stands stoic as the heart of the Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge. The dog days of summer frame the tree in vibrant colors and accentuate its gorgeous silhouette and reflection in the wetlands. I cannot think of a better place to get in touch with gratitude.

Wetland conservancy is such an important gift to our planet and mental health. A place for us to connect with nature and clean air. A place where all living things can thrive. 

I hope the September gratitude card and print help you honor yourself or someone else with strength and wisdom. Both pieces are press-printed on Bamboo, an environmentally-conscious paper with no sacrifice of elegance or quality. Photographic prints in a variety of sizes are available on Etsy in the Angie Windheim Photo shop.
