It’s been so beautiful here this week! We’ve been in the 60s and 70s for highs which feels nice and cool to us. Of course we’re watching the weather and know that most of you are experiencing a ‘winter blast’. So come on down and walk out into my back yard today. Grab a lawn chair and sit in the sun!
I wanted to show you what the Bald Cypress trees look like right now. They are deciduous, losing there leaves in the winter months, hence the name 'bald'. They are conifers as well. This species is a popular tree, grown for its light, feathery foliage and orange-brown to dull red fall color. Wikipedia info HERE.
I had a couple of people ask me about the Live Oak tree. I went to Wikipedia for this quote. More info HERE.
“The name live oak comes from the fact that evergreen oaks remain green and "live" throughout winter, when other oaks are dormant, leafless and "dead"-looking.”
I’m joining Beautiful Sunday
