As I Sit Beneath Pink's Shade...

Seems like all we remember is the darkness of any September day, and forget the beauty surrounding us.

If you do not hear me, you can find me under this beautiful pink tree. Yes definitely here. So I will soak up these last hot days even the rain and a lot of dark clouds gathered over the city.

early Istanbul morning


  1. Our Crape Myrtle trees are just now finishing up blooming as well. They do brighten up the landscape...especially against a bright blue sky. Enjoy your summer days while they remain.

  2. I will imagine that I am sitting under the pink tree with you. We will relax, chat and savor the beauty of the day.

  3. That's a beautiful tree to sit under for sure.

    I actually like the changing of the season - any season. I like the "new" of it. Our summer has gotten rather brown and dusty so I'm ready to move on.


  4. Nihal, it would be very pleasant to sit under that beautiful pink tree for me as well.
    Besides, here in Piedmont is still very hot: 30-32°C!
    Have a very nice day!

  5. It's still very hot here in Madrid too, Nihal! We still have 32-34ºC, but September is already here.
    It's nice to enjoy these last summer days and look at your pink tree thinking hwo must must be that pink shadow! (*sigh*)

  6. The days are getting shorter, fall is on it's way but we take whatever we can of the summer, I see you do that also, nice tree to sit under.

  8. That is a beautiful pink tree, you will find me there too if there is one in my garden. Thank you Nihal for the kind wishes and prayers..Elissa is back home and doing well. Happy weekend, lots of love and hugs always.....M
