Tulip Poplar flower

I love trees - I snap many photos of them. They tell stories. Placing my hand upon a trees bark, it vibrates--talks to me. The leaves brush together in the wind--voices. The limbs rub in the winter and sing. I love them all. These are tree photos taken "off the cuff" in Oregon, So Louisiana, and NC, ramdomly placed.
Some of my favorite trees are the beautiful live oaks of Louisiana, the weeping willow, the tulip poplar--esp the one right off my porch, but there are so many many more. All telling their stories. All beautiful. Listen: listen. right now I hear the leaves whispering in a sudden breeze...
What are your favorite trees?

I was just thinking that the big old live oak looked likt Savannah. Nice pictures.

I've always felt an affinity with weeping willows, though since moving to our home here, I've fallen for the little tree we have out back. I don't know what kind it is, but I think it's absolutely lovely!

Osage. I found a smoke tree out by my cottage this weekend--unusual, pretty. And, I have a really cool twisty - curly cypress growning in my back yard. The geinko was one of my favorites, it would rain down all it's leaves every fall, the same day, Sept. 19th.
