Another glorious tree

This one's ours.  A lovely post oak that graces our side yard near the garage/shed.  You can see it's still hanging on to its leaves, even though the wind has been doing its best to rip them free.  Some of the other oaks are giving in, but this one's hanging tough...for now.

We had oaks at the last farm we lived at, but not this one.

Such a beautiful tree. Speaks volumes of its history.

You lucky girl. I need to plant an acorn. :)

I love the open space with a great sky and huge trees! I've never been to Texas, but you're making me want to come! :D

That's some tree -- it's truly beautiful.

That tree is something special, I suppose it gets it's great form, because it didn't have another around it to make the canopy lopsided. That little tyke near it will not grow as perfect.

I love the way that oaks and willows hold their leaves after all of the other trees have dropped theirs. It's like they are determined to hold on to summer, just a little longer.

What a beautiful oak tree. I think I could write songs to oak trees, that one has been around awhile. It is just lovely. I love how pretty it looks out behind the tree. Beautiful pastures.
