..Supplications, prayers, intercessions and the giving of thanks, be made for all mankind...For kings, and for all that are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.
I Timothy 2:1-2
The goodness
From honesty
More or less
Leads to the truth.
It may bear fruit,
And it may not...
If God makes room
To preserve a spot
For flowers to bloom,
Off an old plum tree,
That's fine with me!
Poetry by me, AJP
In other words I am satisfied with just seeing the beauty of the flowering tree without the fruit...But I won't complain if we also get plums with the bargain:)

This was a difficult SP experiment as there was very bright sunlight today and shadows crossed over my face from the tree where I stood to begin with... I finally got wise and sat on the ground to get this shot and then the battery promptly went dead afterward.... I wanted the tree to be the focal point anyway.

    I love this, Andrea. Your picture hat could set this shot in the 40s and 50s. I would love to see this on a calendar. Very beautiful.
