That is a beauty, Jacob. My Fort Myers community has lots of live oaks and took many pains to build around them.

You were right on target with your comments on HDP today. I'm sure seals were an influence on the shape of Sedna . . . the goddess of the sea and marine animals. And, yes, those ladies were Red hat Ladies. I waited until I had one framed before I clicked.

So you do the same thing?! "Oh, Look a tree, lemme get my camera." :-)

This is one incredible tree! I'm suspecting that it has Spanish Moss hanging from it? Nice color at the base, too.

Hilda said...

Magnificent!

I love the Spanish moss hanging from it too, but I will never forget Lois' warnings about it so you won't ever see me walking underneath them now.

Randy said...

Wow that really is a lovely tree!

Irina said...

What a strong and healthy tree. They are like people, every one has character. Beauty!

I wonder how old this tree is? Charming image.

What a gorgeous tree with a wonderful shape.

Jarart said...

You named it just right! And it's made even more grand by the colorful plantings around it.

Look at that! Gorgeous. The way I play golf, I'm sure I'd lose my ball right in all of those flowers underneath.

Great shot though, it is impressive.

Gunn said...

Magnificent!
I love it!:)

Charlotte said...

Beautiful! Love the red colours underneath this grand tree.
- Usch ... I hope you feel allright after the dentist visit. It can be really painfull.
It's not too cold today, but I would like it to be real summer. Maybe for the weekend?!?
I wish you and Lois-Anne a very pleasant evening!

JM said...

That's a fantastic tree. Awesome!

SRQ said...

Wonderful tree...I hope the Spanish moss growing on it doesn't kill it. The red flowers around it are a perfect touch.

Amin said...
