Keep a green tree in your heart and perhaps the singing bird will come. ~Lois Lowry

A certain blue enters your soul. ~Henri Matisse

    The first photo is just perfect, Janet.

  2. Blue flower is beautiful, but the green canopy is so gorgeous it could be fabric.

  3. Good morning, Janet. Thanks for the beautiful blue, but the overall effect of the first pic captures my attention!

    I do like that quote. And your photos to go with it are beautiful. Quietly uplifting.

    I love the backlit leaves!

  7. I love the way you filled the frame with those leaves. The patterns, light, and shadows are neat. I love blue flowers!

    • Thanks, Deborah. I love the contrast between the light and the overlapping leaves and the branches. I also love blue flowers but now that I think of it, that’s not a color I’ve seen in the desert much if at all.

  8. That tree canopy is something else. It’s almost like a visual illusion; at first it looks like nothing is in focus, and then everything, and then… ?

    Love the Matisse quite as well as your Blue capture.

    The shadows and light and the patterns made by the leaves is stunning!

    wow that first square, the #TreeSquare what a shot – and loving the blue one too. Beautiful post

    • Thanks very much, Becky. I keep forgetting to use the hashtag in my tags as I’m not much of a hashtag person.

        don’t worry, your links have been working perfectly so I have been finding you. I do though find them helpful when preparing galleries, but again no matter if they are not there
