Scene 2 "The trees are God's great alphabet: With them He writes in shining green Across the world His thoughts serene."~Leonora Speyer~ I have driven down this familiar road in town many times always quite taken by the west branch of the river which runs along side it. A very scenic view dotted with water craft of all shapes and sizes. How is it then I totally missed this gorgeous tree of which I finally took notice? Not particularly beautiful by gorgeous tree standards, but a tree of character, shaped by it's sometimes harsh environment, withstanding the test of time. Thank goodness for my instrument of capture allowing me to capture God's serenity, taking notice of His perfect penmanship! Loved both photos, could not make up my mind??? Enjoy!
