Rows of Rainbows

come and take a walk with me
no need for scarves or gloves
a simple sweater will do just fine
the sun shines bright above

the ground is clothed in winter white
the trees are dressed up too
a lovely fragrance fills the air
under the sky of blue

each path is lined with many trunks
and canopies of color
with rows and rows that go for miles
two hands that hold each others



































































































































































































be sure
to tuck
a flower
in your
hair...

What a stunning sequence of photographs.

I especially liked the one where there are stripes of fallen blossom and the trees that shed them towering overhead.

The sun is shining on me. There's blossom somewhere. It's ok.

the sight of all that blossom makes me unbelievely happy this morning. I saw lots of magnolia trees bursting into bloom as i drove around yesterday - i might have to take a page out of your book and go photograph them while they last. hugs to you beautiful xo

I've been trying to decide on which trees to plant in our new back yard. I think your pictures have solidified my choice of a Texas Redbud. Those are gorgeous shots of gorgeous trees. Thank you!

I'm in Las Vegas, and linked up (they charge in this hotel!) to post some pix and look around.
And what did I find?! Two postings of wonderful pics on your blog.
Hope all is progressing well with everyone's health and all.

I am drooling with envy. They are just starting to bud here in Oregon. I think it will be a week or two before we see those kinds of blooms!
