Branches

 
Posted by Picasa


I always love it when the old oaks trees in town have branches that spread out low and reach for the ground. These are low enough to sit on, but haven't quite touched yet. This is another picture from Genevieve Randolph Park in downtown Tallahassee.

Yes, me too, but it has been many a long year since I have climbed any low-slung branches.

I wish we had that green around here right now.

I also love trees with unusual shapes.

They look like they are trying to get some sun.

The trees have that much foliage on them already?
This sure ain't Duluth, MN!

That is a wonderful park and I'm sure a real respite on hot summer days! But, do you sit on the branches and eat your lunch?

I like the branch, a natural shelter from the bright sunshine with lots of oxygen. Just sit there relax with some books, I think somebody would easily fall to sleep down there.. nice picture.. :)

They DO look really cool!

I think it was at the grounds where the Ringling Brothers Circus is houses that an old tree there touches the ground. An enormous tree. This is a nice one too.

They cast really nice shadows too.

I can picture children running up and down those delightful branches, Lois. It looks like fun!

I like these trees as well. We don't have many oaks around here. We're more of a pine area.

Beautiful trees. I'm always amazed at the difference between the oaks you have there and the type I grew up around here in Washington.

Your parks are so beautiful and I love trees with low branches. Here they cut (or prune?) the low branches eagerly for I don't know what mysterious reason...

This is a wonderful photo, I like the way you've shown the "v" of the two trees. A lovely place to sit and have a picnic.
Cheers.

They are beautiful trees. I could sit under them and read a book all day!
