The theme this week by me is "Tree-s, What is it and why did you choose it." Mac, Gail's Man,Kathy and I have a little contest to show a new theme header each week. We now post anytime before 4 PM EDT and voting begins after that. If anyone wants to join please contact Mac or myself.
This is a subject I really enjoy sharing. Thirty years ago I planted this tree in my front yard which is an Ohio Buckeye Tree. I choose it because of the following reasons:
1 The Ohio Buckeye is the symbol of The Ohio State University.
2 I have always love these type of trees.
3 My neighbor, when I was a child, had a similar tree. That was a Horse Chestnut that we had a lot of fun climbing and using the nuts for stringing three and throwing as a bolo.
4 My tree is very prolific and it nuts produce baby trees every year.
5 It is a slow growing tree that makes a beautiful show every year.
It is in blossom at this time of Spring.
The bees love to collect the nectar and pose for you.
I enjoy capturing them with my camera.
My header is a full view of the tree. It has grown into a real beauty.
See what the others have shown above.
