“Trees are poems….”

I’ve spent some time at Sholom Park this week.

TreeMosaic2

Not all of the trees have leaves right now but many of our trees are live oaks that keep their leaves all year round.

A peek at the trees from my bedroom window shows the sunshine we’ve enjoyed this week. (these are in my backyard not at the park!)

I’m joining Sunlit Sunday

and Beautiful Sunday,

 Sunny Simple Sunday,

 Gratitude Sunday,

and Mary for Mosaic Monday!

And a new one, Sundays in my City!

That's a great view from your bedroom. I too get to see fabulous trees out of my bedroom window and I just love it.

Your mosaic is beautiful. Sholom Park looks like such a serene and peaceful place. I think your shots captured that beautifully.

Pamela Gordon said...

The mosaic of the live oaks is really pretty. I love big old oak trees as they just seem so strong. Your headboard on your bed is really nice. Good view from your window too. Pamela

Lavender Cottage said...

Thanks for sharing your sunshine; it's something that is scare these days. I collect oak leaves, they're one of the nicest forms of leaves.

Hi Diane, I love your pics of the trees in your back yard and in the park. The weather has been warm this winter even here in the mountains. The sweet pics of the family made me smile. I was never artistic but I wish I was.

Thanks for your visit. I didn't see the movie 'Ever After' but I will watch for it to come out to rent. We saw the movie 'Lincoln' and it was fabulous. Very realistic and emotional.

Wishing you happy days,
xo, Jeanne

Beautiful. Other than a few conifers, all of our trees are dormant right now. It's nice to see green.

Leave It To Davis said...

We have live oaks, too. I love the walk in the park...so pretty!

Pondside said...

You have a beautiful view from your bedroom window. Up here we have Gary Oaks - indigenous oaks, found only on the island.

Diane Writes said...

Hi there namemate! Correct me if I'm wrong, but you have featured the Sholom Park many times in your posts. And as always, the park never fails to amuse me. I love the lush greeneries and the natural tranquility it gives. I could almost feel the stillness and fresh air here haha

Wishing you a great week ahead. Thank you for linking up.
