#89--My Tree--Back After A Long Hiatus

It has been a few weeks since I posted pictures of my beloved tri color beech tree. So, to make up for lost time, I went out this afternoon and took some pictures of what it looks like today on this beautiful August summer day in the Silver Valley.

Here is a close up of the tree with little furry pods.

Here is a view from under the tree. Notice how the leaves look white around the edges, under the tree...
and look dark pink on the top end of the branches.


Here is another view from underneath the tree. This tree is amazing to me, the way it has different colors under the tree and on different sides of the tree, depending on what parts are exposed to the light.
"Like an apple tree among the trees of the forest
is my lover among the young men.
I delight to sit in his shade,
and his fruit is sweet to my taste."
Song of Soloman 2:3

Tree is beautiful and amazing. I can see why you like it.

Quote from the Song of Solomon made me blush. . .and I am alone. Guess I was thinking about the Hunk, and not a literal tree.

PIMD--I wasn't thinking of the literal tree either...I think this verse should make us think about our wonderful husbands!!!

I am glad to see your tree back. I love thinking of our husbands as apple trees!
