earthquakes and volcanoes …. email@example.com
that is a very beautiful thought, Jimi. Thank you for sharing this one!
Ciao, Francina 🙂
these are nature’s fireworks, the grand encore to when springtime began …. and hopefully a reminder that fresh blooms will occur again after winter’s restful hibernation, thanks for your kind comment as always my friend Francina ….
ciao, Jimi 🙂
Wow – vibrant and beautiful!
thank you ladyfi for the very kind comment …. yes, my friend here was especially vibrant and beautiful on this particular afternoon indeed as well as showing off her absolutely colorful personality much to my delight and others in the vicinity too …. wishing you a wonderful day ahead …. 🙂
what a beautiful photo! so it was taken in Chicago area? Lovely..
thank you nightlake for the lovely comment indeed …. yes, many folks may not picture forests of grandeur when they think of the Chicago area but many moons ago there were certain segments of land that were protected from the machines of man where native American Indians once flourished and thrived …. these sanctuaries bear the title of Cook County Forest Preserves and they are magical places to visit, explore, discover and enjoy …. i go there quite often as life itself seems to be magnified with a glorious pleasure just by being there ….:)
Awwww, wonderous creation! 🙂
thank you bubblytee for such a kind comment indeed and yes, i truly feel that the forest in and of itself is one of the most wonderous creations there is on this planet some have nicknamed Earth …. 🙂
that look is starting to appear around me know as well. it’s a fantastic title because when you just see it alone you expect it’s going to go a certain way. here it went with the season upon us. it does have a relationhip feel to it and certainly that is two-fold. always cool to be able to sake an element of our surroundings to evoke what can move you from within:)
thank you Don for the keen and insightful comment here …. downtown Chicago has some of the finest restaurants in the world, but more often than not i’ll elect to bring my portable grill out to the woods in the surrounding area to cook up a grand feast for one friend or a whole host of friends …. i don’t quite know what it is for sure, but the sights and sounds of nature seem to enhance the flavor of the food and beverages, music for some reason seems to resonate more vibrantly and the overall feeling can be quite overwhelming in a good way indeed …. this colorful grand finale the trees put on seem to reflect upon the times that were had during the seasons with an outburst of gratitude and hopes that more will come as the Spring approaches once again after a refreshing Winter’s nap …. take care my friend and enjoy the colors if you can ….:)
I adore this post Jim ~ maybe my favorite — thank you!! x
Robyn, the Chicago area is blooming right now …. so many trees, so many colors …. this is a precious time to be outdoors to visit as many trees as possible and give thanks …. thank you for your very kind comment and best wishes being sent your way as always …. x 🙂

wishing you a wonderful Autumn as well Robyn and yes …. giving thanks for each and every day no matter the circumstances is standard routine procedure around these parts for sure and i am very happy this entry conjured up some great feelings for you …. 🙂
