Thursday Tree Love: Live Oak with Spanish Moss



This particular southern live oak lives in Airlie Gardens near the coast of North Carolina.

The grounds keepers were just starting to decorate for the holidays, but nature has already decorated with Spanish Moss catching the afternoon sunlight.

My favorite work of human art in the gardens is this bottle house which also catches the sunlight.

Thursday Tree Love is hosted by Tharul Pakur on the second and fourth Thursday of each month.

Thursday Tree Love: Trees Near the Sea

Trinity Trees

You take root in sandy soil

Reaching  deep into the earth

Standing strong in fierce winds

You bend but don’t break.

Challenges build character.

These photos were taken at Trinity Center near the Carolina Coast. It’s been at least a year since I walked the grounds there. They have a habit of building around trees as much as possible which is better than cutting them down.

At Trinity Center, there’s a tunnel that goes under the main road and leads to the beach. This live oak stands watch.
