"Trees fall and so do men"

I Love trees, obviously I live in the wrong state rather the wrong part of the state for such extravagances, but I do. I envy D.C. right now they are enjoying the beautiful cherry blossoms, SOOOO B.E.A.utiful!

I have come to terms with the fact that if I want to be where trees thrive and bloom and the leaves change into brilliant bright rich colors in the fall I will have to live in a place with actual seasons namely places with bitter cold winters and humid summers and NO monsoon season which I personally love.

One of my favorite times of the year, evening monsoon storms that roll in late afternoon, thunderheads pilling up over the eastern horizens mountain scapes. Truly a unique and spectcular occurence.

Citrus trees are a staple in AZ and the citrus they produce I LOVE, and I especially love each spring early in the morning and in the evening when the sun is just setting when the smell of the orange blossoms is most potent. I could sit on the front porch breathing that in for hours.

And this is the kind of forest in which I currently enjoy, gorgeous I know! Such beauty makes the world a bearable place to live.

Love the pictures! And I don't care what anyone says, the desert has it's own beauty. Most people don't think that it's very majestic or beautiful, but that's because they are foolish.
