Old Oak


This old tree was in the front lawn of The Cedars House. I love old trees like this one - perfect for a treehouse or a fort!

Don't you just love all the big old trees we have in the south? I love pecan trees best. My grandparents had them in their yard. Nice photo today. Brings back memories.

Your old oak photo is impressive. I wonder if it is a white oak or a red oak? I planted a white oak much too close to my house about 23 years ago and hopefully the roots won't invade my office space.

Thanks for visiting and commenting on my snow covered squirrel.

Looks like it might be a live oak. They are beautiful trees.

I love old trees, too. This one is captured in stately strength. I often make paintings of them, aside from photographing.

Yes - we don't have too many deciduous trees in these parts, so these are a rarity when we see them . . . lucky you to have them all about.

I wish this tree was in my yard. :(

We have a lot of pines in my neighborhood. The land used to be part of a pine forest. There is still some foresty land nearby and some of our neighbors occasionally get deer in their yard. But they don't usually make it up to the front where our house is.

Beautiful shot. I love the pale blue sky behind this wonderful, stately old oak. If it could talk, can't you imagine the fascinating stories it could tell?

Thanks for sharing.
