Cinnamon Toast on Amy's Tree

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 18 November 2011 in Landscape & Rural.

On a cold crispy morning in Vermont. The leaves of Amy's tree were sugarcoated with the frost king's special sugar.
The berries waited impatiently for their turn to enjoy the sun too, and feel the steam rise from the moisture on their rounded red bodies.

Sweetness is everywhere....if we just look.

SPECIAL NOTE: OUR FAMILY WILL ALL BE TOGETHER CELEBRATING THE THANKSGIVING HOLIDAYS, SO, I PROBABLY WILL NOT BE AS ACTIVE ON THE COMMENTS AND RESPONSES, BUT I WILL DEFINITELY BE HERE, AND I WILL ALWAYS BE LOOKING AT YOUR IMAGES, SO KEEP THEM COMING :-).

ALL THE BEST - DENNY

ALWAYS FEEL YOUR SOUL....
HONOR THE MAGIC IN YOUR HEART"
