#ThursdayTreeLove – 28

Parul, from https://www.happinessandfood.com/thursdaytreelove-28/

liked a photo I posted last week on “Serene” and invited me to submit something for

“Thursday Tree Love”.

But here’s what I discovered…When I went onto my site and picked the word Tree from the list of Categories, I was shocked to find how often I write about or post pictures of trees!!

Here is one of my favorite Tree photos!!

And though painful, here is a re-post of one of my favorite Tree Stories:

https://chosenperspectives.com/2016/10/05/tree-daily-prompt-from-chosenperspectives-10-5-16/

I clearly love me some TREES and I’d also love comments on either the photos above or this story.

Thanks for the invite, Parul!

Not a “Real” Autumn!!??

To those people who do not believe that we have lovely Fall colors in the Pacific Northwest, I say pooey!!

I’ve put just a few, both in a slide show (wish I knew how to add music) and as larger shots. I hope you enjoy. I bet if you try you could even smell this crisp, clear air!!

Delta for WPC 7-1-17

The word Delta, for me, has only one meaning.

I guess my world is pretty small.

I blame (and thank) my father, who taught us the only real sin in life was boredom. All other transgressions were lessons we just had to learn, but boredom was an insult to God.

Dad taught us that at any moment, in any setting, we could simply use our senses and become aware that we are always surrounded by miracles!

So…though I have seen many places, I have never needed to travel very far to be completely captivated by my surroundings.

Therefore, in my small world, the word “delta” immediately brings to mind the area of the Deep South that I lived in. (Well, that and maybe the airline that could get me there…)
