      trisha – I hope one day, you are able to see them … I traveled back to Texas yesterday from Louisiana — I crossed a vast body of water, and cypress trees were the panaramic view; moss draping down their arms with blue skies and white egrets and herons to accessorize them … for me it was breathtaking!! 😉
