The Serviceberry Tree - September 16

Serviceberry Tree leaf in late summer.
Today is the day for the Serviceberry Tree.  Some of the leaves this time of year are still holding on. On this tree, most of the leaves have fallen off already.

This tree gets their flowers on the branches really early in the spring and the leaves fall off before most other trees.  With this early life habit going on with tree, this tree reminds me that getting up early in the morning is really an amazing thing to do.  I am getting up really early lately,  I am getting up before the sun and am really really enjoying the bird song each morning and watching the sky lighten before the sun shows in the sky.

I hope everyone can get to know a Serviceberry tree.  May you each find one in your life.
