The glory shall come unto thee... and the trees, to beautify the place of my sanctuary, and I will make the place of my feet glorious... Isaiah 60: 13
Our Crab apple tree
Begged me to stand
With its blooms today:)
I stood like a statuary
Touching hat with hand.
Then got chased away
From natures sanctuary
Running feet to house
Before rain showers
Soaked the flowers
Into my blouse...
Poetry by me AJP
On a whim I decided to take a picture with the flowering crab tree today and no sooner had I shot this self portrait, when it started to pour down rain...the overcast lighting before rain, however, really recorded the true colors perfectly.
I think the turning point here is the reality of how quickly the weather can change in the blink of an eye or in in the shooting of this portrait.

    Thanks all for your kind words! Susan, I found this cute hat at a rummage sale that I stumbled upon today in town and also the blouse

    I bought that I am wearing in the self portrait. The hat was a give away in a free box and I liked it immediately, but had no idea that it would match the blossoms so perfectly until I shot this picture.
