Photos from Florida's Capital City (and occasionally a few from other interesting places I have been fortunate enough to visit in my travels!)
I love big old trees, they give you a sense of past times. I always admire the people who plant trees like oaks, knowing that they will be long gone before the tree is fully grown.
Yes! And you must go back every week. This is my kind of tree.
Bet it has a lot of great stories to tell, if it could.
Magnifique Lois! Awesome shot! Creepy looking with those hanging slimy like hangers but it offers excellent Viewing.More photos of the The Wedding for you.
Glad you did it this time. The tree is gorgeous and I also love the hanging lichens!
That's a biggie! And all that Spanish moss. I think it kills trees but a tree man says no. Nicely composed shot, Lois!Have a great day!
Darla--it's actually off of Pedrick Road on the east side of town. I was coming home from my daughter's house. She has a contract on her old house and is hopefully moving to my side of town next month. I'm keeping my fingers crossed!
Now THAT is a BIG tree!
I love oak trees. I always think of strength and endurance.
Great photo of a handsome tree!
Glad you did, it's a lovely tree and I usually do too, I stop and really have to do it this time.
Hi Lois that sounds like a comic strip, lol. Hello Lois, that's a great looking old tree. I'm glad that you stopped to take the picture.
My first thought was that this looked a lot like the tree Steffe has photographed a gazillion times. I don't think you'll be able to catch it with any snow on it though:) Great shot.
Slimy like hangers? Lichens? Spanish moss? I'm glad you guys got here before me - I've never seen anything like that on an oak tree, so was going to ask the question...
It is Spanish moss, which can be found hanging from almost any tree in Tallahassee.
Right away, it made me think of Steffe's tree. I grew up in an old house with many oak trees in the yard. I love 'em.
What a magnificent live oak tree, Lois. I wonder how old it is? You know your in the south when ya see an old oak dripping with Spanish Moss. Nice Photo, thanks for share it with us.
Looks like a good climbing tree!
