How is it that people are not all utterly enamoured with Trees?

Check it out. Even the bark is so beautiful . . .

Have you told the trees about your publishing deal? Just kidding. I like trees, too, despite my profession.

Gorgeous! Don't know if you remember, but when we moved from Honduras to Massachusetts, you weren't at all sure you wanted to live in a forest!

That first one is just exploding with texture! Love it!

When Mrs. Craver lived in Chicago, we used to love to drive past a certain intersection because of this biiig, beautiful tree on the corner. Then one day, they cut some of it back. I understand that safety was probably an issue, but we mourned the loss of such an old, beautiful thing.

They are cool pics. #2 looks like an eye. I like the one that is grabbing the rocks, too.

The Item--shhh!

Mom--I do remember this detail with irony on a fairly regular basis. My main objection to forest was that all those trees were, as I saw it, the chief deterrent to my getting a horse. Good thing I got over it . . .

Craver--yeah, that's my favourite. I'm thinking of posting it as my photo for a while. ;)

Barry--hey there! Thanks for visiting (and commenting, in case you've visited before). That tree sort of overflowing the rocks just had me in awe. Its root-system kind of reminds me of Jabba the Hut--only cool. And not slimy.

reminds me of many long hours spent in the woods growing up, and the peace that pondering the trees and the leaves can bring. Glad you're surrounded there and have the eyes to see! (And the ability with a camera...) =]

Oh, how I do love trees! I'm even making tea from the pine needles now (and you know what? it seems to be giving my skin a pretty cool uplift!) The things trees do that we never expected.
