Outdoor Wednesday







Susan at http://asoutherndaydreamer.blogspot.com has asked us to join her for a big Outdoor Wednesday party. Pull up a chair and view some of the very best outdoor scenes you will find anywhere.




These are large, very, very tall lob lolly pines in my back yard. This picture does not capture their real height. I bought these back in the late 60's from a charity. They were about the size of your little finger. Trust me, they are growing straight up. I never thought I would see them this size. It was my understanding they were not a native tree. Of course, this is the way they look now after the snow storm we had last winter.


These are two views of the pine cones and needles that grow on them and clutter your yard.

Snow storms and ice storms can cause alot of problems to trees... SAD!!

Wow, very impressive!
Years ago a new supermarket gave away little pine trees for their grand opening, my dear Mother grew hers into a HUGE tree.

It is fun to plant a seedling and watch it grow from year to year. Looks like they provide nice shade for your yard.

Big, stately trees. Do you any decorating with the pinecones. I can imagine all kinds of possibilities. Happy Outdoor Wed.

Hi Meme - great pictures. Pines are one of my absolute favorites - the smell of them - nothing like fresh pine! Have a great day!

LV,
I have heard of Loblolly Pines but I've never seen any. Thanks for showing them to us today. I love to hear the brush of wind through the pines - very soothing.

The trees are quite tall. I guess after 50 years, you might expect that though. Glad you've gotten to enjoy them through the years.

Your cones are lovely. We have old pines but the cones are always dried. I put them in the fireplace during the winter. So appreciate you stopping by. Jane F.
