Under The Blue Marble

My youngest son and I took a trip to the Arboretum in town.. maybe around the end of the 90's
I picked up a few seedlings from this tree..planted two- one on each side of the property.
This one is much bigger, but I heard they bear fruit tasting similar to a fig and
fancy beads are made of the seeds (blue). Neither one have produced anything yet, but I have a Royal Poinciana that took 7yrs before it blossomed? (I'll save that for later) Maybe something to do with growing them from a seedling (or two males perhaps)..what do you think?

Well, the leaves do fall far from the tree don't they..
(you do see it)?


Ya..it's a lot of pictures..but what else am I suppose to do with them all? (lol)
Above, growing off the end..(be sure to enlarge)..


And as they say, "a rolling stone gathers no moss"
Most of these are of moss adhering to old wood and nails except for the one below

Hmmm...mushrooms growing through WOOD?? And are you making that sweet little kitty walk the plank? His green eyes look lovely with the green leafy background! I do see the leaf floating far, far away from the tree, goodness what a detail to see and snap, how fast you must be or else it fell in slow motion!

It's a lot of picture indeed but beautiful, all of them. Those first tree and sky photos are amazing and your kitty is so cute.
That's the problem with photos of different subjects; you can comment on all of them.
Have a great week!

Thanks for your comments! Yes, that is our son playing chess with Phil. That picture was taken about 10 years ago when son Mike had longer hair and he really looks different now. The other photos were taken over the years, most pretty current. The header is less than a year old. You picked up on all the running around, then the sleeping pictures!!

All lovely and refreshing. Your model did a fine job posing and showing off the subject. Better than Vanna White.

Yes, I see it. It is a betrayed one that try to go the furtherest away from the parent.

I love to photograph mushroom. Happy to see you are alike.
