Very wise words. And that tree has such beautiful fall colors. Such a great view!
Doesn't it? I always enjoy watching it change colors...its the only tree I know of that turns yellow, red and orange!
So true, isn't it? :)
Indeed! Love the Fall colored beauty!
We're really getting some nice colors now! So beautiful!
Wow, that is just stunning colors. I noticed our grandson back in Greenville IL, posted the fall colors on his fb. He said he's never seen this kind of season change. Just wait till Winter with this CA boy. HaHa.
Oh, that is so true! The midwest has four very distinct seasons...and each of them bold and hearty!
Thinking of Kaleb and the seasons, I forgot to say how much I liked the four things. Very wise indeed.
I saw the quote on pinterest but it didn't have an author. Yes, very wise!
so true Dear Betsy!!
yes, it is! :)
The picture is wonderful too!!
I love looking at that tree! I was looking at it waiting for the boys' bus this morning!
oh dear! is absolutelly beautiful, here is all Green and begin to be hot!!
oh, but spring is lovely, too!
yes but here is short, some day you wake up and is summer!
at least you have a pool!
Wise words. And that tree is gorgeous in all its fall splendor. What a lovely sight.
Isn't it great? Thought I'd better take a picture before the leaves start to fall! ;)
I don't know about thatI can throw a stone and pick it up again easy at my matThere other threeI'll have to agree with thee haha
Must be because you can't throw very far.Could fit all your muscles in a tiny jar?hahahahaha........
haha boo to youMy left arm can't throw far at my zoo
At times I wonder if your left brain works at all.Oh, now I've teased too much at your hall!hahahahaha....
Beautiful tree - and yes - how very true!mary x
yes, I agree!
Beautiful photograph. Beautiful photographer. I do hope you have had a splendid Monday, milady.
Well...I do believe you have a "secret" admirer Betsy!!!Not sure..is that a good thing???The tree is glorious.....love the color...When I find a great shot..and I want to do a header...I think.."Why didn't I take it sideways!" Fits better...:o)Enjoy your evening...Find that secret admirer...Cheers!Linda :o)
I agree Linda, she has a secret admirer, and is nice but why he is anonymous??and this milady! he is teasing us??
yes, Linda..you noticed, too? hmmm....
maybe is someone you know Betsy!
No, I don't. He said so on yesterday's post!
And the plot thickens.........
we will all be waiting to see what the his next move is!
Like chess?? Lol
Gorgeous tree! I love the ones that have several colors on them.
me, too....I always notice that about this one!
There is nothing sadder than regret.
yes, that is true....and it takes some self control to prevent it. Easier said than done sometimes!
Regret can eat you up....literally..
Yes, Linda, and we mustn't let that happen either.I am ever thankful for a God who forgives even when people can't.
Wish I could show you the trees here in New England, doll!
Put a photo on your blog!
I'd rather give you a tour. Ha.
I might take you up on that, if I'm ever in your area. :)
so true on the things you cant get back...the first two particularly...and that last...so much goes by every day
right....and that list wasn't meant to depress anyone...just challenge us.I can't believe how fast time flies!
Beautiful view... and you are so very right about that list of four. blessings ~ tanna
Isn't it? I remember when that tree was just a twig. It's been fun watching it grow over the years.
What I need is a little tiny Betsy that I can put in my pocket to remind me of these things as I go about my day - can you shrink yourself really small?
If I get to come over there to jolly old England? Yes! hahaha....
You would be very welcome!
ok...packing my bags! :) ha.
Beautiful picture of the tree! I love your post---all so true!
Isn't it? It's shaped perfectly and centered in front of my front window....purely a coincidence, of course, since it belongs to the neighbors. ha.
What a lovely tree. Is it a Liquidambar or a Maple maybe?
I think it's a maple. Funny you should mention Liquidambar. I was just reading about those yesterday...never heard of them, but they are recommended if you want a fast growing tree.
They do grow fast. You may know Liquidambars as Sweet Gums or maybe even Alligator Wood? I think they are native to the the eastern states of the US. Maples of course you get just everywhere! Liquidambars have very exciting autumn colour - they'll turn bright yellow and orange and crimson and still some green leaves all at once. I wish my garden was big enough to grow one but we have a Purple Leaf Plum and a genuine ex-Christmas tree already.
I've heard of Sweet Gums, but couldn't identify one. They sound beautiful!
Um. Hand shaped leaves like maples but they grown alternate on the twig where maple leaves always grow opposite. Probably a bit late in the year to squish a leaf and get a lovely zesty lemon smell but you might be lucky. Little bobbly flowers and prickly bobbly fruits - of course you know that maples have clusters of little green/yellow flowers and the fruits (samaras or keys) come in clusters and fly like helicopters. They probably grow wild near you. Not in London of course but we have several wild maples instead.
beautiful betsy, amazing color, we have, ahem,,,, SNOW!!!!
Oh wow...well, you know I love snow! But I have to enjoy fall, first! :)
thanks for that. those are all good to be reminded of. your view is beautiful. I live in the desert and so miss green somedays. you all have a great day, taria
I'll think of your desert when it's midwinter here. ha.
Beautiful picture! I think our leaves are going to fall before they get any great color. Happens here in the south on occasion. I did read that some parts of our GA. state are doing well with color. The list really makes one think. And so true. JaG
Stunning!!! Isn't God creative!?!? Love it!
Oh that poem is just, mmm, incredible, reminds me I need to appreciate life's unique and precious beautiful moments more often, something you're incredible into doing.
