This unusually shaped oak tree stands on the right-hand side of the front yard (from the street). I wish I could have taken it from the front porch. 😀

    While I still haven’t quite gotten the hang of this Google + thingy…I popped in to look at your posts and, well I love trees, their shapes and stories. My last two ‘stones’ were about the maple in my back yard…Sept 17 & 18. at my wordpress site.

    Have a great day… cheers.


  3. Loved this picture, when I was a child I would walk past an old oak which had a similar looking bulge.. We called it the Elephant Tree, because it looked to be like the face and trunk of an elephant. .. Now from a distance if you turn your head at an angle.. Yours looks like a Hippopotamus Lol…..

    Hi Becca, nice to be back, after a relaxing holiday… wishing you well. ~Sue xx

    These are wonderful…I can see why you would want another view of them from the front. I would suggest … probably I have many times before…if you ever go back, find out who lives in the house…? city hall ? …. and ask if you can meet them and photograph the house and yard.
    That would make a wonderful book of photo memories for you.
    I’ve not been refused when I’ve asked to come into a yard and photograph…yet, anyway ! I have only had positive experiences asking.
    Thanks for sharing…so fascinating because they are something I’ve never seen before.

      That is a great idea, Siggi. When we stopped in August, there wasn’t a car in the driveway. Another aunt lived next door; earlier we could always get better looks; but alas she has passed as well. 😦

      I will check the next time I go through the area. Thanks for the suggestion. xo
