Who are these men and why were they in my yard tickling the trees???
Actually they were trying to restore our power after a broken branch was blown by the high winds into our power line….no tickling was involved..well maybe a little.
Meet the Banyan tree…these are awesome and huge and a great place to get your picture taken!
Yes, the title of this post is misleading..these gorgeous trees are found in the South and luckily, Venice Florida has a lot of them…..aren’t they beauties? I’ve seen some that weren’t this pretty, but there are streets that are just lined with trees covered in “Spanish Moss”, and it’s a joy to drive along and look at them.
I found myself drawn back to the Ten Acre Woods where the horses spend so
much of their time…I did get awesome video of them and I’ll post that soon.
The day was gorgeous and the woods, serene as always. I captured these
images and I hope you’ll enjoy them..The color was so different from my
previous visit and I found myself captivated. Hope you enjoy! I have no idea how all of this techno babble appeared below some of the images, but I am
powerless to correct it..i.e., technology impaired. Sorry

Today I feel like I really accomplished something! While I wasn’t looking, the woods silently
crept up on the guardian of my little nature sanctuary. Last year I realized that my beloved
sycamore tree had been captured and claimed by the woods! I have watched “Mama”,the three
legged deer rest under this tree. One afternoon, I watched “the girls” and little baby tri
stand under the sheltering arms of the sycamore and try to decide if it was safe to
approach me..(they did).
This tree just holds a special place in my heart. When I reflect on things in my life.. whether
I’ve been near or far, I like to think that I’m always standing in it’s watchful, protective
shadow. It simply represents home.
So TODAY,,,I reclaimed it from the woods! It now stands apart, just a bit, so that all who
see it knows, this tree is something special…
So here are some images of my beloved woods…
And a little hint of things to come….
Do you see the nest being cradled in the branches of the sycamore?
Guess who lives there….
Let’s all whisper it together….the little bald-headed squirrel.
Even now, I am tippy toe-ing around…so that you can’t hear me…making my little
preparations for the crowning of the little squirrel with THE HAT! And the SECOND hat…
and the THIRD hat…do not give up on us…the fun is about to begin
