Outdoor Wednesday



I trust your Outdoor Wednesday is cooler than mine. Susan at http://asoutherndaydreamer.blogspot.com will cool you off with lots of lovely nature scenes.




These are trees that appealed to me.

Do you see what I see when looking at this tree? To me, I see the form of a lady slightly bent in the trunk of it.

How old are the trees? I didn't see the lady until you pointed it out.

I cannot see it... I have had trouble finding things hidden in pictures too.

I like the trees tho.

Lovely trees!

It's certainly colder here! We're heading for mid Winter! It's 62 degrees F. That may sound warm to some but we're not designed for it!

Hi Meme, the trees are gorgeous. Ours have all stopped blooming. The weather here is in the low 70's. Delightful.
Happy Outdoors Weds.
Hugs, Jeanne

Hi LV, the trees are gorgeous... I like your illustration of the 'lady' tree... That's the way I feel these days after my knee surgery--trying to walk!!!! ha

Hugs,

Such interesting looking trees. I saw the woman, too. But I also saw an eye looking at me, in the trunk of the tree on the left.

Is that a bradford pear in the last photo? We used to live a street lined with them in South Carolina, and I loved them in the Spring.
My kidlets called them popcorn trees.

And then one late Spring we had an ice storm and in the middle of the night we heard cracking and booming like gunshots. It went on all night long.

And in the morning when we went outside, we were saddened to see that all of the bradford pear trees had broken apart right down the middle in a fan shape in every yard.

It seems that bradford pears don't have stong enough branches to withstand an ice storm.
Our road looked so different without our beautiful popcorn trees that following Spring.

Hello LV, thanks for dropping by my blog and for your kind appreciation of my photos. I read your profile and i would like to congratulate you for your age and still feel very young. You are so blessed. My mother also turned 80 last April and also still strong, though of course she is not as techy as you are. hehe. Your photos displayed here and older posts are beautiful too.

I love mature trees, yours are beautiful. We planted a few trees about 5 years ago, our landscape only had 1 tree on it. They are filling out nicely. Yours look really pretty in bloom.

It made me think of a grandmother bending down as if she was talking to her young grandchild. Great catch LV!

Just as I like to look at clouds in the sky and see what shapes I can find in them, I also like looking at the trunks of old trees and see what I can find in them. Great tree trunks for sure.

You are something else! That's awesome!

I wonder how old the trees are. I'm sure they would have a few stories to tell. Thanks for coming to visit us at 3 sisters. It's always nice to see your comments. Have a great week!!

I always see trees as having souls. So it never surprises me when they have the shape of a human or an animal. These are all beautiful trees.
I love the new header. Very nice.

Sailing Simply said...

I can kinda see it, but I had to go back and look at it really closely! Very neat! I also see the eye in the other tree though! Thanks for stopping by an your tips on the male birds being the pretty ones! Have a great weekend!
