If Trees Could Talk ...

I'm happy to bring you a new picture of my favorite tree. You can see its close proximity to the Gulf of Mexico with the water and breaker rocks in the background.

Mother Nature, our master sculptor, continues her artistic work molding and shaping my favorite tree as the continued exposure to the south wind kills the branches on the windward side giving it a flag-like appearance. What did this tree look like ten years ago? What will this tree look like ten years or even twenty years from now? Only time will tell ...

In addition to the day-to-day challenges of these trees, Hurricane Rita, the most intense Category 5 Hurricane in the history of the Gulf of Mexico with its storm surge approaching twenty feet and 180 mph winds, leveled a small coastal town to the east of these trees in September 2005. She shattererd another small community a few miles to the west of these trees as well.

In spite of one of Mother Nature's greatest natural disasters, these trees survived and stand proud today serving as an inspiration to be strong in the face of adversity, to weather the storm and surely better days will follow.

Wouldn't it be nice if these trees could talk and tell their tales? What would they say?
