Summer's Greenest Pleasure

Joining Dayle's Simple Summertime Pleasure party at A Collection of This and That.

Today's  Simple Summertime Pleasure is simply seeing lots of green as well as waterfalls.

Sometimes it's nice to just sit and look up at the giants that have been around for hundreds of years. 
When sunlight filters through the millions of leaves, leaving a mosaic on a forest floor, it's quite a sight to behold.

The green of summer is rich and bright.  Seeing trees in their summer finery is better than looking at a sea filled with emeralds.

When sitting, looking at trees, and listening to the birds flitting among the branches, one can almost feel the presence of God.  Is that Him whispering to us when the wind sways the branches?

We are so blessed to see the green of summer, don't you think?

Do You Ever Think About the Green, Green Grass of Your Childhood Home?

Such stunning photos! I have noticed here in South Australia since the good rains that there is a rich green in the paddocks. We are blessed. Mave

We've had a couple of wonderful (albeit stormy) rains this past week. What a boost to everything green.

Your photos are beautiful. I love everything about waterfalls. What a lovely one this is.

There used to be a phrase used when one was stressed "calgon take me away" now a new phrase
for today. "GREEN" take me away. The photos you captured are so easy on the eyes. They make me long to place myself in each photo.
Have a great day.

Hi, I'm visiting from Simple Pleasures. I LOVE your photos. They're beautiful.

I must tell you, your post definitely struck a chord with me. Waterfalls are among my most favorite things in life...I list them on my blog description as one of the "beautiful things" I enjoy.

Also, a few years ago, I moved to an area of the country that has a desert climate...which means not very much green. I never knew how much I loved trees and green grass until they were minimal in my life.

Thanks for sharing. Have a great day.

I like to think about the green in my childhood home alright..but the thing is it only lasts such a very short time! Pretty pictures.

What a unique post, Susan. I'm often mesmerized by the many shades of green the Creator uses in His world, but never considered them a simple pleasure. Thanks for opening my eyes. They surely are.
