McGoldrick August 8, 2014 at 8:37 am Beautiful photos for the oak tree story! Maple is our Canadian symbol but oak trees dot the neighbourhoods here and over there in such a stately way! Great to see! 🙂 Reply Veronica August 8, 2014 at 11:57 pm Hi Patricia. Thank you so much. I love the old trees here in England, but I also love the maples and firs of Canada. We don’t tend to have any sugar maples in Vancouver, but I dream of a time when I can take a cabin in the Laurentians and be there painting for a couple months during the autumn. 😀 Reply Texture | tnkerr-Writing Prompts and Practice August 8, 2014 at 10:12 am […] Challenge: Texture A mom’s blog Weekly Photo Challenge: Texture Lost in Translation Texture WordPress weekly photo challenge: Texture | Rewired and Retired in Nicaragua Weekly Photo Challenge: Texture Realization Weekly Photo […] Reply TEXTURE VIA TREES AND WATER! | PM27's Blog August 8, 2014 at 3:33 pm […] week’s weekly photo challenge , that is.

There are a few oak trees in the city close to where I live, but mostly Plains Cottonwood trees. There is one close to two hundred years old in a park near the river. It is absolutely stunning with all its crooks and bends and thick bark. Trees are truly remarkable! Reply Veronica August 11, 2014 at 10:27 pm I think so too Renee. There are giant, hundred year old coniferous trees in Van, but only Europe gets these granddaddies deciduous ones. Here they can be 6-7 hundred years old easily. I know the oldest tree in Britain is a yew and is between 3000 and 5000 years old! 😀 Reply Bipasha August 14, 2014 at 2:58 am very nice! mine’s about a tree, too… Leave a Reply Cancel Reply Name * Email * Website Notify me of follow-up comments by email.
