You're all wonderful warm people and the encouragement I receive back for my visual contribution here, in iPeace, charges me with fresh energies. Thanks friends.
This Sunday morning of January 4th, 2009 we woke up and observed a new orange flower on our pomegranate tree. Has Nature gone crazy? Pomegranate flourishes on early January? Perhaps the Global Warming is to be blamed of? Well, I see the positive side of it and a bless to all who sees it.
Enjoy our flower of peace and prosperity with love, from Care4u

* Pomegranates normally flourish in spring time, around May.

I'm currently living in Midland, Texas ...February is usually the coldest of our winter time here. However, this year we had record high temps in the high 80s. As I grow older, my body feels more pain with cold temperatures, and though I am grateful for the mild and shorter winters, my body also does not do well with extreme high temperatures either.
My lesson in this is to enjoy the moment, in whatever it may bring, focusing on what is really important, the ability to find a neutral ground that offers physical comfort.
Global warming has been recorded in history, and comes in cycles within even larger cycles. This time however, in addition to the natural phenomenon, mankind has manipulated so many of these natural occurrences, it has become an additional factor in the equation.
Carbon in Carbon out, is a delicate process, and takes time to process. More and more carbons are being produced than can be recycled in the natural balance.
In Texas, the general agreement was to watch for the blooming of the mesquite bush that seems to know when all danger of frost has passed. Two years ago, as well as this one, that is no long true. All the lovely flowers that came to enjoy 80 degree temperatures, were destroyed the next day by a winter storm with freezing high winds and sleet.
Enjoy the moment, that's what so special about photography, such as yours, capturing a moment in time.

Our Cherry Blossom Trees spout in early January - it used to be in March. There are hundreds of wild Iris in the back yard that now bloom in January, instead of March. I have photographed these items and many other nature photos for 20 years - all from the same location, and have a date and time stamped on them. Yes indeed, Spring in the San Francisco Bay area, begins in January. Even our Fire Season was early last year - Began in late May - the worst anyone has seen.

Yes, the times they are a changing. It is I who must enjoy the early flow..

Beautiful photo! Much peace to you.
