Last week I found a heart in the deeply furrowed bark of a black locust tree. The heart for this week is one my mom found on Monday high up in a black cottonwood tree. She pointed it out to us, and I took a few pictures.
It was a rainy, gray day, so that made the colors in the picture rather monochromatic, and I think perhaps that makes it harder to see. I'm unsure if you will be able to see the heart in the tree. As far as I know, I'm seeing the same one my mom saw. Let's see if you can spot it (or maybe you'll find a different one). . . .

Did you find it? In the following picture I marked the place where the heart is. Can you see it now?
Black cottonwood trees are such beautiful trees. And since we're on the subject of hearts and black cottonwood trees, I thought I'd mention that they also sometimes have heart-shaped leaves. This picture, in such contrast to the pictures above, was taken on a sunny day! What a difference sunlight makes.
And just because I like cottonwoods so much, here are a couple pictures from last month. . .
