Oh, the Magnificence of a Tree!

Beach near Cannon Beach

Apple trees  Woodburn, OR
 Sequoia at Yosemite
Coastal Redwood in N.Calif.
Gnome Beach aka Oswald West, Oregon coast.
 I found my place just inside this tree on Mt. Hood.
 The changing colors enchants me.
 And the tree just outside my window delights.

How I love trees, each with it's own personality.
They do enchant and delight.
As a child I spent much time in among their branches.
Swinging from the branches and feeling the wind in
my hair was a joy I will never forget.

You can certainly tell which way the wind is blowing by that second tree! Trees are such wonderful organisms and you've shared so many great examples. Love the tree advice!

Enjoyed seeing all your photos. I just saw some interesting divi divi trees on Aruba recently - they have unusual shapes and always bend to the west.

Lovely photos and of one of my favorite things to photograph, trees! I enjoy looking at them everywhere I go. Was recently in the NW and I enjoyed all the "Christmas trees" growing everywhere. Thanks for sharing nature's beauty.
Happy weekend………...
