Very pretty!!! So nice to see things green!!
It looks like twins! Love how it fairly hugs the ground.
I can see why this would be a favorite! I love that your scenery is so different from what I see around here - so open.
It looks like it is opening its arms to heaven!! I see why you love it. blessings ~ tanna
I understand why this should be your favorite tree. Probably old also. Nice to see when it's so close to the ground :)
Gorgeous shots, and the tree is fabulous sitting on a field of yellow flowers..
Love the curving branches. Beautiful tree.
It is like a loving tree. I did have a giggle Theresa, a locust as far as I know is a plague insect, much like a grass hopper. In numbers, they can strip the countryside bare as they migrate. Did you perchance mean a Loquat?, although it does not look lie one at all.Whatever it is, it is a good reference for the eye in an other wise flat landscape.
Such a beautiful three, like the shape and the fields of yellow flowers is so lovely!I was out last night again and I brought my cellphone this time :))
I see why it's one of your favorites- love the shape.
Standing alone with wide open, on the ground branches, welcoming TexWis for a "looksee!" (Liked this very much.)
That's a picture worthy tree right there.
Morning, I can see why it is your favorite tree, love it`s form, Francine.
a beautiful tree! love the curving branches that reach the ground.
Gorgeous tree and what great pictures you take ! Happy Thursday !
What a beautiful tree shape!
It's a wonderful tree! I can see you and the crew all sitting, quite contentedly underneath if for a brief rest.
What a marvellous sculptural tree. Have a terrific Thursday.Best wishes Molly
Simple beauty. All alone in such a field.
Nice! It looks like it's half buried!
Very nice tree you are sharing with me, Tex. :-)
That tree is perfect for the photographer. I love it's sprawling shape.
Its very graceful looking and the field of gold adds just the right amount of color to all the green. Love looking through the fence too!
what a great looking tree...easy to climb for kids too ;)
It's beautiful. We do tend to notice nature's landmarks along our way, don't we??
So different. I can see why it is a favorite.
Looks like an old beauty!
Great pictures. The tree looks like it would be fun to sit in!
a tree with a sense of style...love to see Mesquite trees...
That old survivor tree sitting in the golden pasture certainly makes for an interesting shot! Good eye!
Oh, I like that tree. We have a similar one near us too.
Looks like just to top is emerging from the ground, how neat!
brilliant new green growth, and I like it in all seasons to. i love it best when it looks dead... but it is beautiful in its spring leaves.
It's a neat looking tree and I think that it looks more like a Mesquite tree. I had to go online to look it up and I found out that it's a very useful tree, very interesting... I also looked the Golden groundsel and found out more about it. Lovely pictures.Hugs,JB
That is a lovely and interesting tree. It amazes me how some of them grow in such interesting shapes.
The tree looks unique.
It is a tree with character and charm!Good Morning Tex!
Good tree for sitting and reading.
Cool tree and beautiful field! As low as it is to the ground, it still stands out prominently.
I love that tree! Looks like a fabulous climber. :)
Dearest Theresa,Love its 'sitting' position. For that there is a slim chance it being a Locust as they grow up in a taller and narrower shape. Guess it is a Mesquite. Does it have velvet catkins in the spring? You ought to be able to figure it out...Hugs,Mariette
Awesome old tree, I can see why it's a favorite!
Beautiful tree - nice yellow field.Thanks for your comment on my blog ..... it's me sitting on the bench. Wish you a good Thursday :)
What a great tree, hugging the earth like that!
oh that could be a fav .Very nice.
I looked up some images of locust trees and mesquite trees, and it seems that mesquite trees more often had that close-to-the-ground look. But, whatever kind it is, it's an eye catcher.
Is this tree unique in its growth with the split trunk or is it common with this species? Also, are they all "low to the ground" like this one? We definitely don't have anything like that here.
Oh, green, green grass. Send me some.
I like to photograph trees too especially old dead ones. They have lots of character.Felicia
Lovely in every way, tree-luver Theresa.
I can see why you love it, it has such great character.
love its low to the ground-ness and i wonder why the trunk is so short
Beautiful and special tree.Regards, Irma
It looks like someone sat on it!
I love the shape and how it's spread out and open. It would be one of my favorites, too.
A fine capture of this interesting tree. I would wonder at its location in the middle of a field and by itself. Your shots are always high quality.
what a beautifully shaped tree! I can see why you love it so much!
Such pretty scenery! I love springtime shades of green (and yellow).~Lindy
stunning... and I see why ya love that tree
Hi That beauty tree looks like it is lifting its arms up adn is 'Praising the Lord' that spring has finally arrived! Beautiful and also I love the whole field. Love to have a picnic there. Margaret
Wonderful photos with a magic tree, exquisite colors, I like!
Just imagine all the things that tree has endured! It sure has character!
geweldig z,on boom die zijn eigen gang gaat.
After the great ice storm of 2007 around here, I have a very different perspective on trees like that, but since it is already split in half, it would not have much farther to go.
last two are my favorites. ( :
It's a beauty and easy to see why it's a favourite. It exudes character.
Some fence! Six strands of barbed wire! This would keep out full fledged armies! I can remember on our farm when the standard fence had two strands of bared wire. Are the cows and horses getting smarter these days and can get out? Just wondering.
It is a tree with character, it would be a favorite of mine too! Love the field go gold. Pretty shots!
T, Very nice!
Beautiful -- more Texas wildflowers, golden this time...love those as well as the beautiful tree.The term farm-to-market road was new to us when we visited TX for the first time; made perfect sense after we read up on it.
They're very eerie trees - lovely. The space you see every day... I love that.
It certainly has a lot of character! Love the field of yellow blooms around it. :)
pretty twisting, twirling branches!! what a beauty!!
That is a really neat tree! So unique!
Pretty tree, pretty field and pretty fence!
It is a lovely tree!
That tree almost looks like it's lifting it's arms up to pray.
It looks like the trunk has split or is it the sort of tree. its branch's are very low to the ground.peter
It's lovely! Did a storm split it once?Lindahttp://coloradofarmlife.wordpress.com http://deltacountyhistoricalsociety.wordpress.com
Bright and sunny photos, beautiful and the tree is lovely.
i think that the tree is just relaxed and is resting, which gives it its shape. Beautiful image.
That tree definitely has character! Love your big sky country! So lovely. xoxo
Cool tree! It looks like it couldn't choose a direction in which to grow so many different ways it went!
What a cool tree!!! And love the photos with the yellow ground cover!
Beautiful trees, looks like a heart in the middle
I can see why you love it!
That is a really nice tree! I like the way it drapes on the ground. The yellow field of flowers is really pretty! :)
Love the gold in the fields.
That is a very pretty scene. I like that tree too.
No matter when or where, it makes a great fence presentation.
That tree definitely has a personality all of it's own
Looks like it has been around for awhile...love how it branches!!
I really like how you got closer and closer to that gorgeous tree! It looks really lovely there. :)
Love that blanket of greenish/yellow!
Beautiful tree and photos. It almost looks like it was split by lightening or something. I love the shape.
It looks like it is spreading it's wings and trying to fly.
I grew up in mesquite country in south Texas. had a bunch in our yard! - The Equestrian Vagabond
I had to ggogle what grounsel is, our fields cometimes is yellow,
We have a running battle with Mesquite and Hackberry around here but this tree does have an interesting shape.
I can see why you like this tree. I like it too.
Great shots of the tree, looks different.
That's a beautiful tree! If I seen a tree like that I'd be trying to throw my kids up in it to take their pictures! lol I do that a lot when we are on vacation! lol I can't help it!
You would die to see the trees that I've seen today. I couldn't take pictures because I was driving all day. We went through a lot of redwoods, and there are also a lot of gnarly trees that remind me of olive trees. And MILLIONS of vineyards. Astounding drive today.
It is a lovely tree especially surrounded by those little yellow flowers.
That's and easy tree to love. And the fields are stunning.
Picture perfect gorgeous!
I love the way it touches the ground.
It's like they are bowing down in their own way of saying hello, stop and enjoy the scenery!
There is a wisdom in old trees.
What a graceful old survivor--looks like it may have been a twin trunk that split? And I was taking pics of fields of gold today, but yours are much better.
What an incredibly beautiful field..and that tree. I wonder what stories it could tell?These photos just fill my eyes, sweet Friend!!
I love the contrast of the hard fence against the soft sweeping fields. Really beautiful...
Dearest Theresa,This tree (whatever the name is, p;) has really fabulous shape and the color matches the environment(^_^)彡☆ Sending you lots of love and hugs from Japan to my American photographer friend, xoxo Miyako*

I love the tree and the lovely field of yellow!!
I can see why you like it!Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne
Its a great tree for the first climbing lessons for children. Like it.
I love old trees like this one, especially when they spread and cover such a big area. Pretty shot.
Beautiful contrast of colors!A kiss.
That is a lovely old tree, it looks right at home. Thanks for the note on Friday Fences, I'll link to it as well.
Lazarus with arms spread! :)
That is a cool tree, indeed!!!
I can understand your affection for that beautiful tree. I have my favorites picked out along my usual routes and usually say hi to them as I go by. A little nuts, I guess, but they are important to me. That last pic is gorgeous!
What a beautiful old tree. It has lots of room to spread its branches.
The tree is a real beauty. I'm almost positive that the tree is a mesquite for may of them that are really old spread out in this manner. There is also a huge stand of mesquite in the background so that pretty well is a clue to its identity. At least that is what I think. :-)
Love the at tree - I just visited "Angel Oak" in Charleston and will be posting about it soon... it is like 1000 times the size of the one you photographed here -but it reminds me of it just the same.
A little piece of natural art!
A very special tree, and also a beautiful too.Also great that large field full of yellow flowers.There I will be really happy :-)
That tree has so much character. So beautiful with the lovely yellow flowers.
Oh, I so love this...reminds me of some trees I found on google earth...which I had sent the photo to you...or the link to the photo. Can't think where I found them now.
That is an interesting tree. Looks like it forgot to grow "up."
It's a lovely tree. I'd be happy to drive by it when I went to town, also.
I'm with you! That tree is a beauty! Although they make me want to sneeze, all the flowers sure add color to the view.
