IF - Subterranean




















Here is a subterranean view of one of my favorite things--trees! I love everything about their scratchy, craggy, leafy, lumpy, twisty personalities. I love them from their tippy top branches to their gnarly roots and everything in between. Big ones, small ones, fat ones, tall ones. I love them all. I'm a tree lover.

Me too! They're one of my favorite things. I go on walks just to look at my favorite trees.

oh pat, if you could visit the park by my house you'd go kookoo over the live oaks. a forest of ancients that are inspiring. thanks for reminding me that i should give them some sort of homage like yours.
