Now that's a tree...



This live oak is a local landmark in Thomasville. It is over three hundred years old and as you can see...it is enormous. 


Saw one of these...an eagle...in a beautiful blue sky.


And went back to the nursery to pick up a few more lamb's ears...snapped some color for you.





 Heading home today...

                                             Enjoy the day,
                                                  Robyn

    Now that's a tree! WOWZA! I am just surprised how short it is. "Up north" the oak are much taller. Must be a different variety.
    Thanks for the flower pics. It's been snowing here but nothing too significant and I'm guessing it will be melting this afternoon. We've been having unseasonably warm temps but you won't hear a complaint from me!
    Have a safe trip home.
    Hugs :)

  5. I've been enjoying all the pictures from your trip. I bet you're glad to be home though. Vacation is always nice, but getting home always feels good at the end!
