Fall tree

This lovely tree is along the highway just before you reach town.  It stands guard near a pristine pond, pretty house and groomed yard.  I loved its golden glow of fall.

I thought it was a type of oak, but the sweep of its branches almost reminds me of a willow. I love it.

Unusual color! I really like the pictures you are taking with your new camera. But I like the old ones too. :)

Oh what a glorious tree!!!!
I have always had a great love for almost any tree!!! (And I say almost because I have seen a few scary looking types;)
When I was young(er):)) I used to give all the trees around our home names. I always tried naming them to suit their personalities...because I am SURE they DO have personality!!!
I love nothing better than a beautiful, old, massive tree - like the one you captured!
Thanks for sharing. I think I will try to think of a name for it:)

Dawn, I LOVE that you name trees! How wonderful! Let me know if you think of one for this beauty! :)

Very pretty, you know you must live in a climate part of Texas just like ours. Maybe that is why most of the people here are from Oklahoma and Texas.:) Just the way it looks and even the way that tree is changing color. I really enjoy your photographers eye.

The tree certainly looks good, especially with the leaves on. Ours are long gone and buried under drifts of white stuff

Hello!! Its blog-catch-up day and I've so enjoyed my visit to catch up on your week. You have some really interesting and lovely pictures all the way from the sweet little gold-finches to the lovely tree that I think looks a bit like a painting!

I love the graceful shape of this tree.

Farm Girl said...

Me too and I can't figure out how to get them back. Note to self, don't work on blog while sick. I just have to do this one for awhile. :) It looks like yours.

My husband, nature man that he is, is also Swiss, which means that things must be kept trimmed and tidy (like watches, I suppose). :D

When we moved into this house, the first thing he did was to chop down the grape vines, shave off the trees; trim, trim, trim. I would go outside and plead with him not to keep cutting, but he said that a healthy garden needs careful trimming. "But you have to leave roots!" was my appeal!!!

Things have grown back and are thriving and healthy now, and a few years back he planted a great maple just for me. "I'll let it grow wide for you so you have all your shade, he said, but not too tall because it could be dangerous." :D :D

Well... I'd let everything grow out sideways and wild, if it were up to me. I guess that means we make a good team. xoxo
