I have always been a "tree lover" and enjoy the different types where ever I travel.
On one of our hikes in Florida we came across this old, old tree called Live Oak. The boys were in awe of its size.
My oldest grandson climbed it as I'm sure hundreds of kids have done before. It was beautiful with the Spanish moss hanging.
Coconuts ripening in another type of palm.
I don't know the name of this palm, but I love how all the foliage is on the tops of the branches. It has great structure.
At the top of this tall pine were a pair of osprey making a nest. The pine needles are very long and perfect for pine needle baskets. I made one years ago but did not enjoy making it, but I do love the bakets.
Look at the center of this hibiscus plant, it was a surreal hot pink with 5 little nodes.
This pelican landed in my parents yard next to their pond while I was throwing bread crumbs to the fish. He stayed a while eyeing the fish.
