The Gallery: Trees

I live in a VERY tropical city and there are many things I love about it - among which nature in general ranks at the very top of my list :) and trees in particular are something I totally love!
Our home is located very close to the river and there was a time when I had a job so close to our place that I walked to work daily! and not only that but I was so lucky my daily walk to work was along the river!!!
The rainy season is during the summer and the photo above shows the river with muddy water - typical after an all night long rainstorm, some beautiful trees and green everywhere!!!
Trees to me mean life - what about you, do you like trees? Would you like to participate or view other entries? Visit Sticky Fingers and join in the fun!

This week's theme was very fitting for me as nowadays I have to conciously find the time to notice and enjoy the small simple pleasures in my day-to-day crazy busy life. Here is what I have been enjoying:

Cooking yummy fresh zucchini!

Our potted garden

The early morning sky

I hope you too find the time to enjoy the many simple pleasures we have in life, and I've decided that Simple IS good :)
Have a great rest of the week and for more fun entries or to participate visit
