I popped over from Nancy's when I read your comment. I thought "I have to learn more about this blogger."
I love what you write about yourself in your introduction!
I also like your picture of the tree. In some circles I'm known as a tree hugger as they are such wonderful creations who could tell so many tales!! Joan

Gorgeous! I love trees! My neighbor has a camphor tree that I'm in love with. Seriously, my boyfriend has competition. ; )

Mark said...

Old trees are great. I love how they can grow sometimes.

Gigi said...

I would love to have that in my yard!

YeamieWaffles said...

I love these photos. I'd love to count the rings inside the tree to see how old they really are.

Karen said...

Magnificent!!! I love big old trees...

troutbirder said...

Interest. Old as the hills I'd say. Actually I'm getting there myself...:(

Mamma has spoken said...

WOW can't help but wonder how old that tree is!

Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell said...

I just love the character in old trees. Oh, the stories they could tell us, huh?

Barbara said...

Now that is a fantastic tree!

Margaret (Peggy or Peg too) said...

I have a "thing" for trees.
I love this!! beautiful.

George said...

What a magnificent old tree! The spread of the limbs is almost unbelievable.

TexWisGirl said...

i would label this one as "LOVE"! holy smokes, it's beautiful!

Deborah said...

I love the delicate little flowers under the massive tree. Juxtaposition baby!

I love trees, except for the huge mess they leave in our yard. #bitchenismymiddlename

TexWisGirl said...

She looks like a survivor from the places some man has chain-sawed her limbs, yet she only grew stronger and more beautiful for it. Makes me miss the South. And nothing much makes me miss the South, but that tree does. That beautiful mother, holds nests in her arms, shields many from the heat, invites all to come beneath her for respite...like "Steel Magnolias" she is SOME tree and you caught her in your lens exactly in her GLORY.

Sally said...

Awesome!

And, very fitting as I know you love trees. Your photo's are always amazing.

xoxo

Heidi said...

Oh I love trees! These are fabulous trees!! Thank you for coming to check up on me & for visiting my blog again after all these years. Yes it actually has been THAT long. *sigh*

Vicki Lane said...

Beautiful! And the flowers are the perfect contrast!

Jimmy said...

I Love the old trees, this one is amazing in my opinion

Betsy Adams said...

Looks like that old tree has alot of character.... If it could talk, I'll bet it would have a story or two to tell.

Hugs,
Betsy

Ana Eugénio said...

Furry Bottoms said...

Incredible!!! I think this is a hermaphrodite tree. Normally I can feel if they're a male or a female tree, but this tree has both!! No scientific backing, just a game I play in my head when I go on walks. Oh that tree's a guy. Oh that one is a girl. Dumb, I know.

Betty said...

That must be a Live Oak. I have one in my yard, but it's nothing like that one. I love the trunk. Back in my day we'd call that a great climbing tree.

Pat Tillett said...

Old and beautiful! LOVE that tree!

Dr Zibbs said...

Now that's a tree!
