Man, I love trees!





Okay, okay!  So I also love fences.  And blue skies.  And green grass.  And horses.  :)

Yes trees are wonderful! Is the second tree a fruit tree, perhaps a sort of plum?
Have a nice day.

Carole M. said...

I'm with you on that statement; stately old trees too

Kathy said...

The first tree reminds me of a graceful dancer with arms extended toward the heavens.

Tanya said...

oh i do too! there's some pretty old ones i've seen here...i love them!

Wanda..plain~N~simple said...

I like the first tree, its kind of an optical illusion. If you would have moved to the left a little to close the gap between them, it would look like it had been cut into and tied together!

I love oak trees and the smell of wet oak leaves..Ooohh and maples! :)

Bob Bushell said...

I'm with you on that, bring on trees.

I really like how it all fades out with those tiny twigs at the end. I looked at those last shots and an afro hairstyle came to mind!

Melodie said...

Me too,especially the really big old ones! All of ours are budding out down here..oak pollen! Time for allegra,lol!

rkbsnana said...

Yes, you do love trees and the world is better for it. And by the way.......ramble is my middle name.
You'll get used to it.

Rita said...

I'm always looking at trees (and birds) when I'm out and about. Those older trees have such character! Yes, the fences, skies, grass, and horses are pretty cool, too--LOL! ;)

黄清华 Wong Ching Wah said...

I love your trees

holdingmoments said...

I know what you mean!! lol

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

Me too :-) They look especially nice against any sky, color or monochrome.

Paula said...

Yes, I love all those things too! :)

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

All great things to love!

Sandra said...

ME TOO ME TOO on all of the above. WOW oh Wow on the second shot, the whole photo is gorgeous.

MarmePurl said...

Man, I love trees too.

DJan said...

Will you show me these trees when you leaf out? I'd love to compare them. They are cool trees even when bare.

Barb said...

I love the shapes of trees too - these are really gorgeous against the blue skies!

Candy C. said...

I love the big trees too and they seem to have more "character" in the winter when they are without their leaves!

ellen abbott said...

They're starting to pop out here.

Madge Bloom said...

Beautiful, I'll bet that the canopy looks lovely in the Spring!

KAT said...

Wonderful ...but I admit to focusing on the trees in all these shots

-KAT-

Mom of M&Ms said...

love these.. but that second one took my breath away

Montanagirl said...

Me too! Great shots!!

Randy said...

I'm with you. There is so much beauty there if you just look.

Donna OShaughnessy said...

I too love the horses, all kinds of horses so never apologize for taking pictures of HORSES ! Never.

Jan n Jer said...

Me too...this would have been perfect for quotography this week!!!

Zondra Art said...

Beautiful tree shots!

Greetings!

Pix at Under the Oaks said...

Me too Tex! Me too!! To all of it! I just love living country :) And it's BIG country in Texas!

Susan said...

What beautiful shots Theresa! I love the trees, you'll have to take more when there are leaves on them! The green grass and the horses - ah makes me hope for spring!

SweetMarie said...

These are lovely photos Theresa. I really like the trees and horses. These are so relaxing to look at. :)

Patrice said...

I love trees. Hubby used to run a portable sawmill business. Many of the trees he cut were already downed by something like a storm. Others were in need of being pulled for safety reasons, or to help a forest to thrive. I used to visit him when he was working in the woods. The green canopy with sun peeking through can be amazing!The stately, old trees are my favorite. I would love to put more fruit trees on this farm. The deer really give them a hard time. Venison, anyone?

As you might have noticed, I got rid of word verification. I feel somehwhat lighter! The new one is So hard to read!!

Desiree said...

You certainly got to enjoy all five of your loves in these ;)

Jill said...

Ditto! And I also love your photos of all of the above.

Joop Zand said...

Nice trees and photo's with lovely colors.

Greetings, Joop

Rohrerbot said...

And don't forget that you love the entrance to ranch gates:) I know.....trees are really beautiful without the leaves on them and make a nice sculpture piece in a pic next to a skyline. I'm a sucker for bare leaf trees as well.....although....they are starting to bud a little early this year. I walked out into the garden today and my peach trees are blossoming!!!

Furry Bottoms said...

I was just thinking that it certainly looks mighty green now compared to how it looked over the summer with the drought!

Giga said...

Ale z zielonymi liśćmi byłyby jeszcze ładniejsze :-). Pozdrawiam. *** But with green leaves would be even nicer :-). Yours.

Brian Miller said...

what is not to love about all of those things..i do love trees...and horses...fences sometimes....and def spring weather...

nice pics!

Lynne said...

Love the clarity your photos bring. I think I can see each and every branch. I love trees too! I hope you will take some pictures of these trees after they "leaf.". .

Karen said...

Me too!

Pricilla said...

And it shows!

Betty Manousos@ Cut and Dry said...

i love horses, and green grass, and trees, and old trees, and...

overall, i love your beautiful countryside/ranch!

xo

Liz said...

I love trees too!! And fences and the country. Oh to be surrounded by so much naturally beautiful countryside every day... Sigh :)

islandwonder said...

I do too. I am not sure what it is about them.

It's me said...

Beautiful !!!...xxx...

Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

That first one makes one wonder why him all alone. How did he get there or how did he escape the chainsaw? Also, thanks for the supporting advice.

pattisjarrett said...

All those things added together make one beautiful photo.

bj said...

Wow...everything looks so green there.

wildlifewatcher said...

Hi TexWisGirl, I can easily see why you love trees! Beautiful shots! Have a wonderful day!

Robin said...

T, me too! I think trees, any trees, are natures greatest accomplishment!

Sharon said...

I'm partial to trees myself, I even like the magnificence of a big old dead tree all gray and leafless.

Dianne said...

I love trees as well

I love the shape of the 2nd stuff
she's a chubby one :)

Kelly said...

I love trees too! Awesome photos...I loved all the green too.
(hehe...the title reminded me of the scene from "Cannonball Run" when Farrah Fawcett would describe how much she loved trees...)

Eva Ason said...

Trees are nice, they come in so many shapes and forms. Nice captures today :)
Have a great day!

Eva

Charade said...

I love that we can see the skeletons of the trees in winter, especially the old ones, and make up stories about their 'old bones' and what they've been privileged to see in their lifetimes.

Sylvia K said...

And with trees like these how could you not love them??? They are beautiful even without leaves, in fact, they have a very special beauty just as they are! Terrific captures as always! Hope your day is going well!

Hookin It With Mr. Lick Lick said...

I've always loved trees too. So much that I have one on my arm, that starts at the wrist and goes up and around my arm. I'm debating what kind of a background to put behind it.

Deb said...

I'm so glad you do...we get to see so many great ones...

Pam said...

Lovely tree shots as always, T.
Have a great day.
~:)

Sall's Country Life said...

Me too! and those trees are an important life link to all!

Clint said...

I think that I shall never see
A comment lovely as a tree.

With apologies to Joyce Kilmer.

It is true that Texas trees are unique.

bailey-road.com said...

These trees have a lot of character.

Ruth's Photo Blog said...

I am right with you. I love trees and their various shapes. These are all really great pictures.

Southwest Arkie said...

Fantastic silhouettes against the blue sky- I hope these trees are live. I'm anxiously watching to see how many didn't make it through the drought.

Andrew said...

Lovely to see... now bring on spring and you can share these again... and also in summer..

Gillian Olson said...

It is too funny that you and I both happened to pick "trees" as a subject on the same day. I love your trees, especially the shape of the one in the last 3 pictures. Trees, what would we do without them?

Julie G. said...

I'm a tree lover too! Beautiful tree images!

Ellie said...

Oh I'm with you T, I love trees too.

Tricia @ Bluff Area Daily said...

Hey T,

Are they really going to do-away-with the old blogger 'follow' program?
Can't remember what it's actually called. A lot of people, including myself, signed up for the new linky follower... I've seen some say that they are getting rid of the old one & some say they're not... do you know?

Susan said...

LOL, what's not to love about those things eh!!
I'm a sucker for blue skies, but that second photo is awesome. Cheers :D)

Nancy Claeys said...

That last one has such a nice round symmetrical shape. You'll need to revisit when it's leafed out. :)

Bruce Clark said...

All those things are great to love!

Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

Love the graduated blues in the sky in the first pic:@)

Mary Howell Cromer said...

I do too...love them all!!! Hate to lose even a branch, yet we do all of the time, so you can only imagine how I get when we lose a tree, and yet, we do that too. These are all very special trees that you shared!

Millie said...

Trees and grass are some of my favorite foods. Fences are more of an appetizer. :-)

Casey said...

Ditto! If you don't mind me saying!

Farm Girl said...

It all looks so nice and yes, I love trees too. Not to mention all of the other things too.

Tammy said...

Me too! That second one has lots of personality.

Margie said...

And they love you too T! No one else would give most of them a second look. You are the trees Mother Theresa!

momto8 said...

such beauty!! I have been looking at photography blogs lately...and all of a sudden i am seeing things I never saw before...like trees!!
I am your newest follower...pls follow back if you can.

SouthCoast Guy said...

nice pictures...how long does that green grass last in Texas?

Nancy said...

What a winning combination....beautiful trees, green grass and horses.....such beauty....

Fireblossom said...

I'm wondering if that second one might be a mesquite?

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

I love trees in that state too! You can see their "bones" -- their graceful form. Lovely trees and Texas blue skies. Perfect.,

Katie @Pinke Post said...

And I love snow today! Beautiful trees across the skyline you captured.

Michaele said...

I am always seeing trees you might like now. I see a lot of them : ) Love the first one here.

Linda R said...

It's so weird.. I think I love all the same things.. Hee Hee.. These are all great photos..

Tammy said...

Gorgeous! The last 3 are my favorite!

Linda said...

You can't go wrong when you put all those things together in one photo. What photo isn't enhanced by the presence of horses? :)

Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

LOL! Me, too! Me, too! Me, too! blessings ~ t.
ps thank you so much for your input on the MIL situation.

Paula said...

I'm so late today I had to scroll waaay down to find your entry. We found a little green on a mesquite today. That is supposed to mean spring is here for sure.

Martha Z said...

Fences, green grass and blue skies, a very scenic combination especially with a hose in the pasture.

Kerry said...

I love trees too.Your trees in TX are so very different from those in Oregon. They stand out like skeletons with no moss or detritus hanging down, how cool.

Country Mouse Studio said...

I agree they are beautiful.

Rose said...

These are really nice...I am really partial to the second one...

SquirrelQueen said...

I love all of those things too and when more than one is in the shot it makes it even better.

Marie said...

These are all so gorgeous, but my favorite is the second one. Oh how it reminds me of so many of the trees I used to see when we lived in Texas. Brought back good memories!

heyBJK said...

Great shots! I really like scenes with lone trees.

Spare Parts and Pics said...

Sounds like you're in Heaven... surrounded by the things you love!

Kerri said...

LOVE LOVE LOVE your trees!

ladyfi said...

Wow - love the tree shots. So beautiful!

Evelyn S. said...

I'm curious as to the species of tree(s) in your post. Actually, I'm curious as to the species of deciduous trees that I see around here, too. ;-) Evergreens are easier to identify, generally.

Tatjana Parkacheva said...

I love trees, too.
Beautiful photos.

Regards and best wishes

Pat Tillett said...

Roan said...

I love trees, too. You sure found some nice shaped ones. Love the composition on that 2nd one. It's nice to see green. We are getting daffodils, but not much green yet.

James said...
