Photo Monday – In the Neighborhood

It’s been a long time since I’ve taken my camera with me when taking V to school. I’ll see something interesting and sometimes try to capture it on my phone but it’ll never be as good as my camera pictures. Last Friday, the rain had stopped and I took my camera. There’s a building right on the corner of our street that has, I guess I could call it a garden. It’s just a small strip along the side but it’s packed with plants. I noticed the flowers peeking out of the fence.

And right next to that building, a tree. You know how the new leaves on a tree or plant are a lighter shade of green? This one has green leaves (with a bit of red) but the new ones are a deep red! It’s like the new leaves are playing at being flowers.

And then, there’s some kind of fruit growing in a tree close to the school.

The rain has made the tree that grows next to my window all mossy.

I love that profusion of green in the city. Looking out my window and seeing birds and squirrels… Knowing that what gives me so much pleasure to look at also gives me fresh air, shelter and food for animals…

    Those little deep red leaves are fascinating! I wonder what kind of tree that is. I love the mossy tree too, and how you captured its texture.

I love reading your comments! I will try to respond to every single one.
