Yes, wow, bare tree branches are good!! Who needs all those leaves and flowers? :) The first one is incredible, the others follow well and smooth from the first! Thanks for the view of spring - we have awhile to go...

Beautiful photos and beautiful words! Pink blossoms on the first photo are so lovely.

so NOT cool said...

I've always felt like every tree is a picture. I'd like to raise a drop cloth behind individual trees and take their photos. (I thought of that a few years ago, and then saw a project where someone had done just that.)

Lovely post, lovely photos.

I don't know anything about oaks... are those pink flowers from the oak? They're really pretty!

ELK said...

pink flowers are from an early flowering tree called a Redbud....they are the first to bloom here!

The tracery of lines from that oak are like the backs of my gran's hands - beautiful and wise.

P.S. "HLT" I'm guessing that means His Love Triumphs
(thanks for the kind words)

I love the bare branches of trees. You witness the trees' strength and fragility all at once. Beautiful post today, ELK.
