Live oak trees...on my early morning walk around my town....
For more wordless photos, go to Wordless Wednesday.
This made me think of my dad's cousin Amilda, who lived on Live Oak Street in New Smyrna Beach. Beautiful trees and happy memories.
Those look familiar to me - there's one right outside my window right now - ha! Some of the ones you featured are really old trees. I hate it when those get cut down for 'progress'. Loved this.
One of the things I love most about Texas, Kay.
The tree trunks look a bit like in a fairy tale wood !
Beautiful trees. I love the patterns of the branches.Thank you for stopping by our Wordless Wednesday today, too 😺
big old trees, lovely - I like the ones around me that have Spanish moss hanging from the limbs
Yes, we have those a little south of us. I learned as a master naturalist that the Spanish moss doesn't hurt the trees.
Thank you for sharing, some of those trees are huge!
Beautiful trees! I can only imagine how spooky they must look at night time, compared to the rays of sun coming through now. Gorgeous.
I love live oaks and miss them so much now that we're no longer in Louisiana. When we were talking about moving there the joke was I wouldn't be able to look at the yard before making a decision on the house because if there was a live oak in the front yard I'd want the house no matter what!
Katherine, I'm the same way. I bought my house because of the trees.
those tree are just beautiful!
Have you read Overstory yet? If you love trees, you must!
I'm a huge fan of Overstory. And trees, naturally.
Those trees are beautiful.
Deb,Oak trees are beautiful and massive. My late in-laws built much of their home out of oak - very solid house! They had a couple of really big oaks in their yard not too far from their home for the longest time. When lightening struck one catching it on fire scared them so they had them taken down. We were saddened to see them disappear but understand the reasons why. With the passing of DH's father a few years ago, the home was given to the woman who cared for him 24/7 in his last days for payment of her services and we can no longer enjoy that house full of memories and love anymore. That's really sad! Have a wonderful day and thanks for visiting!
Live oaks are my favorite tree.
Those are huge -- and very impressive!
From Rae/ Many of Alvin's Oak Trees were planted by the Athenaeum Study Club to beautify Alvin.
They also started our town's library.
These oak trees are quite wonderful. They remind me of Texas. particularly San Antone .... where I once went to school. nice.
Those are some stunning trees, Deb! We had a couple of live oaks in our yard when we lived near Fort Worth, but nothing as spectacular as the ones in your photos. We have some gorgeous (and tall!!) trees here, but it's difficult to get a photo of them in one shot.
Oak trees are so majestic but here in Nova Scotia, they are'Red Oak' or 'White Oak' and so on. I've heard the phrase 'Live Oak' many times but have never had the opportunity to ask if it is a species of oak, or whether it differentiates them from, say, dead oaks? This may sound flippant - but I promise it's an earnest question.
I'll send you an email with information about Live Oaks. It's my favorite sort of tree.
