I do not believe I will live long enough to enjoy all the lovely variations of trees. Yours is simply stunning and your header is so clever!

Gemma Wiseman said...

Such beautiful photos! The first image of the red leafed tree suggests Nature's version of a Christmas tree! Gorgeous shape! And love the indoor shadows!

colleen said...

The tree looks like something out of Sesame Street! Love the table set with shadow. http://looseleafnotes.com

Karen said...

Oooooooooooo, that's a fabulous tree!

Gerald (Hyde DP) said...

what a vivid red colour that tree is

Jeanne said...

The tree is so lush and shaggy it makes a great shadow! Your Christmas Cactus is gorgeous and will be heavenly in a few days, but it's your plant in the window that makes that wonderfully interesting shadow! Well done!

Dianne said...

Great shade and shadows shots Sylvia .... I love that shaggy haired tree ... Just gorgeous. xx

Patti said...

I agree with the others, that reddish-orange tree is simply stunning!


And your Christmas cactus is pretty! Such distinct shadows on the tablecloth.

Enjoy the weekend!

Beautiful. The stunning images and these words move my heart. Thank you.

Indrani Ghose said...

The first shot is mind blowing.

christopher said...

That's quite a unique tree...worthy of posting, shadows or not.

And I know little about plants...but can see that is a very healthy and ready to dazzle Christmas cactus.

ladyfi said...

That burst of red in the first shot is magnificent!

Kay said...

Absolutely gorgeous photos, Sylvia! Have a terrific Sunday and week!

PerthDailyPhoto said...

I have to agree with all above Sylvia, this tree is a star. Hope that you're having a lovely weekend.

Leovi said...

Beautiful tree, great, I like it. Excellent colors.

blogitse said...

That tree is amazing. It's like fabric or feathers :) and your cactus seems to be happy sunbathing :)
Have a good week ahead!

Andrea said...

The first tree was so dramatic, I almost forgot to look for the shadow. Both shadows are very nice. I like the brightness of the sun in the second one. Have a great Sunday, Sylvia ...

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
