Silent Saturday ~ Part Seventeen

Happy Memorial Weekend!  And a HUGE thank you to all who are serving as well as those who have served.  I appreciate the sacrifice you have made on our behalf.




My Memorial Tree!!





A burst of color....sunny and full of light!!



Green is the color of spring...fresh and newly born!!



Reflections cast doubt as to what is real....illusions!!



Texture is wisdom and strength...showing me patience!



Painterly pictures of color and light...captured in the sun...focused true and tight!

Have a magical and blessed Memorial weekend!
Hugging you
SueAnn

What a wonderful idea and such a pretty tree. We have Remembrance Day here in Canada on Nov. 11th.

I love how my neighbours to the South are so loyal to their brave soldiers who are serving and who have fallen. May God Bless them.

Have a great Memorial Day Weekend.

What a neat idea - the memorial tree! And I adore the aged old tree trunk. It reminds me of a wise, withered old woman. Or perhaps the grieving face of an old elephant, one tear flowing down her cheek.

Have a great Memorial Day!

Love your black Patriotic tree. I am going to copy-cat you on my mini-black tree. Hope you don't mind :) And is that just a corner of the "TRY" banner still over your fireplace? Bless your heart. I picked the colors with your personality in mind. Not thinking how it might clash with your SouthWest decor...sorry!
