I have this tree at my house, it's right in the middle of my view of the water and the mountains. At first when we built our house we thought about cutting down the tree, but I've found that I've developed a love for the darn thing. I don't know how many pictures I've taken of it but here is a sampling. No matter what time of year it is, I always seem enchanted, and just can't resist taking a picture, or two, or 500.How can you not love that tree? It never ceases to amaze me at the beauty that we have here all around us! I even found a way to get my kids and my tree in the same shot! I'm thinking we might be keeping that tree around for a while, if I were to ever get rid of it I'm sure that I would instantly miss it!
