Sonidos Serranos

Sonidos Serranos: Sounds of the Sierras...
Reflecting some of my family's interests: God's wonderful creation (especially mountains and hills!), music, and language...

Psalm 121:1-2 (NASB)

I will lift up my eyes to the mountains;
From where shall my help come?
My help comes from the LORD,
Who made heaven and earth.

SO many colors!

DJ and I have been enjoying our walks home from “school” these days. It’s a 1.5-kilometer trek one way, which isn’t really very far in Uruguay’s pedestrian culture. But JM and E often join us – and JM gets an extra workout with DJ on his shoulders – because DJ “gets tired” before we’re even halfway home.

Autumn shades in Uruguay are mostly yellows and browns; many of Montevideo’s avenues are lined with huge sycamore trees. The earlier colors of autumn also include the pinks of the silk floss kapok trees, and the later almost-winter shades include the bright red of poinsettia trees.

DJ just loves “The Pink Trees” along our way...

And these red gems flourish in our own back yard!

But we especially enjoy the occasional maples or sweet gums that also dot the city landscape – with their flaming variety of colors!

We marvel at SO many colors on one sweet gum tree!
