Longleaf Stories

full circle in the hundred acre wood


 “To see a World in a grain of sand,
And Heaven in a wild flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour. ”

William Blake



They will die back in the winter. But they will return with the first hint of warmth next spring. Today, standing under those banana leaves, I was transported to a tropical rain forest. And the blooming, fragrant ginger lilly. Wish you could have been there.

  1. Stunning photographs.
    We took at few snapshots of banana blooms in Mexico, but not from such a sacred perspective 🙂

    Your photos bring us extremely close to being there. The colors, shapes and forms are wonderful.
    Thank you for sharing them here.


  3. Are those real bananas? Can you eat them? Sorry, just had a banana smoothie….bananas on the brain…^-^
    Nature offers such wonderful variety…flowers and plants and people, too.

    Wow! We’re having light frosts, and you’re having bananas! Talk about smoothies…


Speak. Leave a memory.
