2736





 de homeless man rests ...

a bench 'round -de-savannah'

under Poui trees

❧✿❧

the Pomerac tree -

fallen pink inflorescence

a natural  carpet


childhood home garden 

a memory of many trees -

a long time ago


fruit trees strong and tall

in the yard where i grew up -

the long rod picker


with salt and pepper

fruit from the Mango Vere tree

eaten green in chow


❧✿❧


the city outskirts -

The Emperor Valley zoo

with bordering trees


under a Bay tree -

Royal Botanic Gardens

note our first kiss


at home paradise -

Guava and Avocado

trees gift us their fruit


my love deserts me -

Plum and Mango trees planted

just sweeten longing


Stations of The Cross

Good Friday in The Hollows -

pink Poui blooming


Easter's a-coming

traffic curbs flowering trees -

the savannah arc


all the trees wear green

circling The Savannah -

after blossoms fall

Reading through a few of the posts today clearly many of us had a great time growing up having adventures in the tres and woods. It is sad to think so many youngsters these days are just glued to electronic devices...but not us though!

This is a nice assortment of trees today. I like like you choice too, with the overriding 'swirl' it looks like the starting of a toilet paper wrap. Most times the kids do it to each other's houses. Did you ever do that?
