I'm in HEAVEN!!! This first tree, in the sunny glade, it rivals any of the trees in "the book"!! You have even framed it in dark green!! And how cool, you even found a Charlie Brown tree, I had to laugh when I saw that! Those little tree cups always fascinate me, i just got done taking some pictures of one myself.

I'm with Ginny, that first tree is fantastic and the framing makes it even better. I love to see branches reaching out in all directions. I am also enchanted by the rocks and palm trees together. When I first scrolled down I thought it was some sort of hut. The ratty palm tree looks like it's had a hard life.

The first picture reminds me of The Tree Of Life. I could sit at that park for hours. You sure know how to take us along with you.

The basin in the tree reminds me of a movie with William Hurt and Sissy Spasik (spelling? on her last name) where they came across a basin like that and drank the water then lived forever. I am bad on remembering names of movies. But how awesome it will be when Jesus comes, we SHALL live forever.

So many pretty photos Sandra! I have the winter blahs and am tired of not being able to go outside and seeing nothing else but white and mud. Sigh.... 3 more months... 4 tops.... blah...

DawnTreader said...

Hi Sandra, I kept thinking that I'll bet there are lots of birds in that park --taking advantage of those beautiful trees. Do you ever see birds? If so, take some pictures for us!!!!!

Love your Charlie Brown tree.
Hugs,
Betsy

You found some beautiful and interesting trees on your walk. Thanks for taking us along. I liked the Charlie Brown tree, but the best thing for me was all that green. Green is scarce up here this time of the year.

Thank you for the tour around the park again :)
Enjoy your day my friend!

Love how the trees are framing the tree in your first pic! Charlie Brown palm...so appropiate! That knot that is now a cup is awesome! These are wonderful Sandra! I can just imagine this park full of youngsters on Easter having a huge egghunt.

EG Wow said...

Lovely photos. My heart must be very quiet because I can hear the music. ;))

Andrew Fulton said...

Wonderful images of all your mature trees Sandra...I bet they all have a tale to tell..

The second photo is neat looks like a cave entrance.The close up of the Knot is great like black and white.
Bray park looks like a great place to shoot photos.
I love the header. It is amazing what you can do with PS.

Angela said...

Beautiful trees! I don't think I've ever seen a palm tree in person. I just don't remember ever seeing one when we went to Florida or California. Crazy I know!

Deb said...

Sandra those trees are awesome....love your new header...very cool....

Val said...

Sandra, these shots were beautiful. What great finds and thanks for taking us along. :)

Chatty Crone said...

First of all - your header - great - I'm sure is a picture you have puttered around with. Lovely.

And the trees - just being able to know the names and seeing all the differences in them.

I love this quote:

“There is always music amongst the trees in the garden, but our hearts must be very quiet to hear it.”

I so agree - sometimes we just need to be quiet to see and hear the beauty around us.

Love, sandie
