Magical trees

Today, as I am writing this post, the Royal Poinciana Trees are in full bloom all around the island.

The bright orange colors of their flowers jump out of the scenery as if they're asking us to pay attention to them and celebrate their beauty.

They decorate the scenery as if they were little forest fires all over the foliage of the islands.

They can be found pretty  much are all over the island, our back yard included, unfortunately our two trees are too young for flowers, yet! Hopefully in the next years we will get some...

Back in March-April, it was the Yellow Birch Trees that bloom. In their case, it's like a little bit of sunshine just pours from the sky!!!

Oh My, I just love bright colors and how much they bright up the tropical scenery.

We humans are so lucky to have such an amazing planet to live in but in many cases we unfortunately fail to appreciate its beauty and importance it deserves in our life.

Today I am happy to say that I am one to notice such things and appreciate them as they should be.

I drive around this beautiful island in awe of so much beauty. Both the Royal Poincianas and the Yellow Birch tree are two of many other wonderful color vegetation that decorates my daily Caribbean life.

I feel as if living in a place like this, God gives me a gift through nature, but He also bless me with my eyes to see it, my nose to smell the perfume of the flowers and my ears to hear the birds singing in celebration of all this magic and beauty.

Do you have any magic trees or colorful nature where you live? Do you take time to slow down and smell the "roses"? Or do you just go by your day without noticing all these beautiful gifts of nature???

Have a magical day!!!

Woooooowww, its beautiful, awesome photos and your values towards nature and living is so moving and uplifting!! The first photo with that orange-red colour and the turquise-blue sky and the white house, gosh, I could look at it for hours..! And you are so right about the gift from God, that we are able to see, smell and appreaciate it all, we are SO privileged! And you know what: I am convinced that God gets something in return, which is our gratefulness and joy about it all. It´s just like giving a gift and knowing that the reciever gets really pleased about it. Doesn´t that make one just as happy to see, as getting a gift oneself? I just so much hope and pray that the majority of humans would look at the Planet the way you do - what a wonderful world this could be... :-)

HOLY SMOKES... that orange tree is FABULOUS! One of the things I love most in this part of the world (Greece) is that fact that there's so many strongly colored trees and flowers. I love colors so much. I often find myself aprreciating the widespread bougainvillea - I just love its ability to transform any dull setting into something amazing. And it looks so fantastic against the blue sky. We humans seriously are SO lucky for all that we've been given. What a setting to be dropped into!
