Renaissance


Now is the time of the illuminated woods.......
when every leaf glows like a tiny lamp.

Beautiful photo and words, Jo.... That is a cute little waterfall... Sometimes the little ones are prettier than the big ones.
Hugs,

I love this time of year when everything is turning so lush and green. Nice poem to convey the message.

Hello Jo, Today we had to make a delivery to Gatlinburg and took the scenic route home, through the Smokey Mt National Park. As you surely know, a lovely wide creek flows all along that stretch of road through the forest and the wood. Things haven't quite greened up yet, but I know as summer nears, one hundred shades of green will fill that foresty corridor, just like that in the beauty of your photograph!
