Fences and Trees

It’s been a good summer for this part of North Central Florida. There’s been enough rain to keep things pretty and green.

I hate to see someone carve into a big beautiful Live Oak, but it’s done now, so I thought I would share.

I like the sentiment….but not the damage to the tree!

We drove to a boat ramp to see if anyone was catching fish and this was a pretty setting.

The shade looks welcoming, doesn’t it?

Mr. Sweet and I loooove fishing so I especially like that one. :)

Wonderful photos, my friend! The fishing scene looks so relaxing - and I agree about the Oak tree. The sentiments are nice, but it sure marred the tree. Will that eventually kill it?

Diane said...

That first photo is grorgeous!

TexWisGirl said...

thanks for sharing these. i agree on the tree. :)

Arlene Grimm said...

Very pretty Diane...I never think of Florida as being so lush. Of course the only part of Florida I have been to is Destin and Orlando!!

Margaret said...

Linda said...

What a beautiful post!! Love all that GREEN!!!! You are so blessed to live in such a pretty place! We are in Colorado enjoying the fall colors. While you are GREEN and the colors here are gorgeous - we usually just change from green to faded green to brown at home in Texas!

Lovely Diane.

Susie said...

I'd love to be sitting right there on the end of that pier fishing too. xo

Lorrie said...

It all looks wonderful. Fishing off the end of the dock would be relaxing and fun.

Beautiful pictures and I love fishing.Blessings Francine.

Lynn@Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

Looks like you had a nice day:@)

Carola Bartz said...

I don't like carving into trees either - or anywhere else where you shouldn't do for that matter. Why can't some people just leave things alone? Oh well.
Glad you had enough rain - I wish I could say that for our area. It's bone dry, and the rain of last night (what a lovely sound) didn't change much.

Shug said...

Betsy@My Salvaged Treasures said...

Everything is so lush and green, can you send some of that out this way? Hopefully no permanent damage was done to the tree and it will heal over.

Patty Antle said...

Love that blue sky! Such beauty there Diane.

Deb @ Frugal Little Bungalow said...

Ah that boat ramp is a sweet spot to be sitting on a warm day!
