Do you ever see a tree that takes your breath away
every time you pass by it?
This is how I feel about this magnificent Live Oak Tree.
It sits in a pasture much alone,
except for the cattle that seek refuge
during the afternoon hot sun.
The oak's branches extend quite a distance,
then dip down to touch the earth.
See what I mean....
Green pastures, blue skies, and one single Texas Live Oak.
Oh wow!! That is one gorgeous tree, I don't think we have Live Oak trees in Iowa..lots of stately Oak trees but not the variety that you have...beautiful!!ReplyDelete
Good to hear from you....I wrote a post a few years ago about the live oaks...they are so appreciated that in many of the small towns, the roads are built around them, sometimes leaving them in the middle of the street. What makes this one exceptionally beautiful is the fact that it stands alone, on this hill of pasture land.Delete
Simply magnificent! Do you have any idea of how old it is?ReplyDelete
Dearest Elaine....no, I don't. There are so many here on the prairie. Over the years, I've written several posts about them. If you will click on my tags( located on the right side of the blog page) "Texas Live Oaks" and "Heritage Trees", you can read about them.Delete
Definitely an eye catching sight. We have a lot of interesting trees in Texas, but do not recall one like this.Delete
That is an incredible tree. We saw some like that at Oak Alley in Louisiana when we took our road trip.ReplyDelete
Oh yes, Louisiana does have some beautiful trees. Thanks for your comment today.Delete
It takes my breath in just your photo...can't imagine in real life! I so wish Tex could see this...she would have loved it.ReplyDelete
I would love to sit under the tree, with someone taking my photo. I don't think the bull, in the pasture, would take too kindly to my intrusion.Delete
I remember these beautiful trees from our time in Southern California. Quite regal and I loved how bold they stood; thanks for a memory, XOXOReplyDelete
Hello Susan...Regal and Bold are good descriptions.Delete
