Nature's gift to us.
Rick has an I-Pad or Tablet, or whatever it is, that he took many photos and videoed the mornings cacophony of noise. (That is an understatement). The video is wonderful, as not only can you see the flares of the fireworks over my roof terrace, but you can also hear the tuba band. It makes me laugh out loud when hearing it and then when hearing it again on the video.
It seems that there are five or six musicians. I use that term loosely. And none of them appear, in their earnestness, to be playing the same music. It's a delight to witness.
After we looked at the smoke-filled and fireworks-filled photos against the sunrise, Rick showed me the photo above. It was taken from the roof terrace of the guest house. I was enthralled.
I've enjoyed the jacaranda tree from my roof terrace. However from there all you can see is the canopy of the tree, not the whole thing and not from a slight distance. The magnificence of it is beautiful beyond my expectations.
I asked if he would email it to me, which he did. I then decided to share this beautiful sight with you. The whole tree, when covered with monarchs in March is breathtaking. Although, as far as I know, there were none in this photo, it is still breathtaking to me.
I always revel in the fact that nature, which is free for our enjoyment, can touch our hearts and senses in such a profound way, IF we take time to notice.
