Sassafras. The Tree Of Flame

Hello Friends! Tonight’s Feature Image is titled “Autumn’s Flames 101822” and is available for purchase by clicking the thumbnail and reaching out to me on the contact page.

My favorite tree is “all of them”. Excluding tree of heaven of course. But sassafras is is definitely at the top of the favorites list. In my mind it’s an absolute embodiment of the Fall season. The various shapes of it’s leaves and beautiful spectrum of colors take me back to magical times when the best thing on earth was a huge pile of leaves to jump into. The sweet aroma of sassafras tea that was freshly brewed from a few segments of sassafras roots was ( and still is ) better than anything found in a plastic bottle at your local big box store. In fact they can’t even legally sell us the real thing because they say it might cause cancer. Some experts disagree but I digress. The sassafras leaves are almost at their peak color and the range of yellow, orange and red on the same tree makes it like a cozy fire that warms the soul through the eyes. The oaks and maples are certainly not without their own beauty but sassafras is special.

Good night friends and be blessed throughout your days.

For those who have been following me on Facebook and know of the struggle content providers have to get circulation from big tech I’ve been recommending for people to adopt MeWe as a social media platform. One of the problems I’ve run into on MeWe is that people don’t know how to navigate the platform. So to help with that I’ve created a permanent page on my website as a basic Basic Beginner’s Guide To MeWe I’ve tried to anticipate all basic questions there and You can bookmark the page to have as a reference and if you have any questions or suggestions don’t hesitate to contact me. I do still have a day job and I help admin several pages on both platforms so replies might be a little slow but I will answer you.

We also have the Lloyd’s Lens Photography Discussion Group on MeWe that is set up as a fully functional community. There you’ll not only be able to see and connect with me but you can also make your own posts and interact with each other.
