Thursday Tree Love: Cypress Trees

Walking along the creek, my husband and I saw several cypress trees.  Their feathery leaves remind me of wild bushy hair, and their trunks flare at the bottom like skirts.

I suspect these are “bald cypress” who like to live near water and sometimes even in swamps. Their knobby knees, which are actually roots, grow up out of the water.

As I lingered to take pictures, David walked a little ahead of me.

He spied something dark near the creek bank and beckoned me to come see:

The turtle dressed in algae wanted privacy, so we didn’t stay long.
