GREEN PROFUSION: THURSDAY’S SPECIAL

August in the valley. The heat is beginning to ease, but the sun is still yellow with an early hint of amber. Everything is in full leaf. I can feel the subtle hints of autumn waiting at the door, but the trees still sing their song of summer

This is profusion: the richest green, the fullest leaf of tree and plant life. The river is languid. It flows slowly, peacefully. The world is warm and rich.

  2. Pro Fusion is also the name of a razor by Gillette…. namely, the one that had that awful commercial a few years ago where the hair preferences of three supermodels are held up as a warning that men needs to buy that razor and shave themselves hairless, lest they might doom themselves to never getting lucky again. Let’s not talk about the profusion of body hair though and stick with the trees….

    • I’m just glad ProFusion isn’t Garry’s razor of choice. I’d have to worry he was off chasing supermodels with a fresh shave — but I’m not sure whose fresh shave, theirs or his. Sometimes, it all gets so confusing.

  5. I love your words and I do want the trees to hang onto summer for as long as they can. Summer always seems to fly by and I’m never ready for fall.

  6. Great photo. Makes me jealous a little – I’m in So. FL and am awaiting the possible first landfall hurricane here. No signs of a coming autumn here!

    • Yes, but you also aren’t going to be buried under ten feet of snow. Win some, lose some. You get hurricanes. We get blizzards. At least we don’t get earthquakes. That’s something, right?

      • Right on. Those poor people in Italy! I wouldn’t live in CA either for that reason as well as the terrible drought and fires. There’s an old saying: if many people throw their problems into the ring, hoping that they will get less problems if they pick up other’s problems; after seeing all the problems others have, they will take back the problems they were willing to throw away. Something like that. 🙂

  10. Isn’t it wonderful to live out in the country. I appreciate every flower, grass stalk and leaf, even the insects. We are so lucky.

  11. Such a beautiful profusion! You and Garry are lucky to be living amidst this beauty. I love your intimate view of the green framed with a quaint little bridge. Arches are always welcome in photography, aren’t they. Should I use “languid” for one of the future challenges? 😉

    • Our river is funny in that it is languid at a few points, but otherwise, it’s a very powerful river with a deceptively strong current. Much like a duck, there’s a lot going on under the surface. Also, the river drops 460 vertical feet along it’s 48 mile course. LOTS of dams and fall. And it’s no longer the most polluted river in the country … but it’s not really clean, yet. Still working on that.

      • All this that cannot be seen from the idyllic photos you take of it. V. glad to hear that it is no longer the most polluted river in the country. That should make your walks nicer.
