Thursday Tree Love: Tree-lined Grace

Live Oaks Along Grace Street

Live oak trees lean over the street named Grace near a big brick church called Grace United. I often take this road on my way home from errands in the historic downtown section of my city. In the summertime, the shade is a welcome relief. In winter, the leaves are mostly green, though a little thinner, continuing to give oxygen to humans and other animals.

The large branches, draped in Spanish moss, provide a feeling of shelter to drivers, pedestrians, birds, bugs, and squirrels.

Do you see what looks like a little door at the bottom of the tree trunk?

Thursday Tree Love is hosted by Parul Thakur on the second and fourth Thursday of each month. For more Tree Love, visit Parul’s post HERE.

Today’s prompt for Just Jot it January is, “understanding.” Thanks to Wendy for the wonderful prompt and to Linda Hill for hosting. Click HERE for #jusjojan details. When I took these tree photos yesterday, I was standing under the trees, so I guess you could say, I was understanding, or trying to. Trees communicate in different ways, mostly underground with each other. But if you put your hands on a tree and are very quiet, you might feel them humming. I hope and pray we humans can all come to understand the life-giving importance of living trees.

  1. I love trees

  2. So that’s what the grey whiskers are hanging from the trees. Spanish moss.

  3. Spanish Moss look beautiful!! You are lucky to be living in a tree – full city! πŸ™‚

  4. Gorgeous trees draped in mossy finery!

  5. I love these words of yours – β€œTrees communicate in different ways, mostly underground with each other. But if you put your hands on a tree and are very quiet, you might feel them humming. I hope and pray we humans can all come to understand the life-giving importance of living trees.” 😊🌳

  6. I love the look of spanish moss hanging from trees. Thanks for the flashback JoAnna.

  7. The photos are beautiful, JoAnna. Would that we could learn to better appreciate nature.

  8. A glorious avenue. Yes, I see the door

  9. Those trees remind me of the trees on streets in Savannah, Georgia, Charleston, South Carolina and even some side streets in Tampa, Florida. There’s just something about Spanish moss.

  10. It’s beautiful and I also loved the name of the street. What a lovely one to watch out for on every trip. Thanks for joining with this one today, JoAnna. See you around later today.
