Trees


Many Florida trees are beautiful.
They are very different from the ones up north that I grew up with.

I could do a daily photo blog of just the trees.

I noticed similar unusual and large trees in South Carolina, too. Makes our Midwest trees look a bit puny.

These are so gorgeous Jack.

Your post prompts the question why some trees in tropical climates have evolved with roots that drop and develop into trunks, but up north they do not.

We just returned from 3 weeks in Ethiopia, with very limited internet access (or time).

Clever trees that grow their own props. How curious.

Michelle said...

I love these with their huge, old trunks and twisted limbs!! It's a little like looking in the mirror these days!! Wonderful captures, Jack, as always! Hope you're enjoying your weekend!!

Could be a fun blog, Jack! Maybe you could do Tree Thursday? ;-))

I couldn't find a lot of info about the Baker museum with pics of the building itself.

I'd like to sit in that nearest tree.

The tree in the second photo looks like a banyan tree to me. I well remember the first one I saw as a child when my family lived in Belle Glade, Florida, for one of my Daddy's job sites. My maternal grandparents came over from Jackson, Mississippi, and took my brother Howard and me to see Parrot Jungle. Of course, I remember the vivid birds, but those trees captured my imagination, too. We also toured Hialeah Race Track, too.

Florida, being tropical, supports many trees we never see in the north. Interesting photos.

These look vastly different than the trees I'm used to!

An unusual row of trees from my vantage point. Nothing like that around Coventry :). Love the shot with a touch of red here and there.

Those are some unusual looking big trees. Would love to take a snap of them myself.

These are wonderful.

A different client and culture. The trees remind me of mangroves.

PerthDailyPhoto said...

Like Bob, my first though was 'mangroves'.. They have an extraordinary root thing going on there, but there's no doubt they are fabulous!

Karl Demetz said...

These are really beautiful !

VP said...

They look alien and fascinating to me...

Kay said...

Do post more tree photos! They're very different and beautiful and well worth blog space.

Linda said...

Neat pictures! I once did a portfolio of trees for a photography class.
