Teagan, of Teagan’s Books, and I have been following each other for years, and for some reason, Teagan had not claimed a tree. Here are the remaining cottonwoods on the property and a Blues Spruce she can choose from. If none of these seem fitting, there are a lot more trees in the bosque.

Love the crookedness of the trees.
How much property do you have? All of your trees are so unique and special, I just love that you appreciate them as individuals!
Hi Tiffany. We have 2 acres in total, but almost a half an acre is in the road.
Horsefeathers….. WordPress is really messing with me. I still didn’t get a comment box — although I do on your other posts. And it wouldn’t let me switch to “view in Reader” although I do on your other posts… but I spotted a link to comments at the top of the post and got here. As I was saying elsewhere, all of these are beautiful and a very difficult decision. Particularly since you included that magical blue spruce. But those two supremely gnarly trees call to me. I claim them, Tim. Thanks so much! Hugs on the wing.
Hi Teagan. WP gives me all kinds of problems commenting directly on other blogs. I usually have to comment through the reader. It’s really annoying. The pair of Cottonwoods are very happy you choose them. They will now get the photographic attention they deserve.
I’m reblogging this post on Wednesday. I’m also including a link to the old post where you imagined the house and graveyard of Atonement, TN into the desert. https://photos.tandlphotos.com/blog/2015/7/atonement-Tennessee
Those photos were always special to me. That site doesn’t let me save the photos, so I hope the old link will work for everyone to see them.
Anyhow, thanks again. Have a peaceful evening.
The Atonement Tennessee link is still good. Thanks, Teagan.
Fabulous choice, Teagan!
Thanks, Resa. I appreciate your visits. Hugs.
Wow Tim, wow. The Dwarf Blue Spruce…is breathtaking.
Hi Gloria. It’s yours if you want to claim it.
The property Tim? Thanks a lot…but no. I wish I could.
Those are all beautiful tree photos, Tim! They have character. 🙂
Thanks, Lavinia. Do you want a tree. I know you have lots of trees of your own.
Sure! I’ll go for the young cottonwood looking west. 🙂
Okay. It’s yours. Thanks, Lavinia.
I love the two trees behind the shed in the first photo. My first thought was they look like they are dancing. 🙂
Hi Robin. That is a great description of the trees. The dancing pair. I think Teagan will like that.
Dancing trees — a marvelous whimsical thought, Robin.
Tim, glad everyone is having WP trouble. Some Blog posts don’t show a comment section. Some I must log in and still can’t like or comment. Resa’s site one of them. Not able to like your posts, but can make a comment, today Yippee. Just wondering, can I ask for a tree, without an invitation? I really like the Dwarf Blue Spruce. It’s beautiful. Reminds me of my kid hood in Maine. And Teagan didn’t take it. Trees are so expressive. You live in a beautiful place. 📚🎶 Christine
Hi Christine. Gloria likes the Blue Spruce, so I told her she could have it if she wants it. She hasn’t answered. If she doesn’t claim it you can have it, but I’m thinking she will take it. There are still two cottonwoods on the property or I can find some bosque trees for you. There are a couple of evergreens in the bosque. I’m not sure where they came from.
Wow, thanks Tim. I’m sure Gloria will take the Blue Spruce. But, if not, I’d love it. An evergreen would be wonderful too. Another reminder of Maine. If all fails. You know me pretty well, suggest a cottonwood or bosque you think would fit. Maybe a tree that would be unique with a sunset in back of it. You know me from Before Sundown remember what made you smile., and the Welcome page filled with sunsets from blogger friends all over the world. 📚🎶 Christine
A tree along the ditch would be good for a sunset background. I’ll find you some good samples to choose from.
Awesome! Thank you so much! Have a peaceful weekend. Happy tree hunting. 📚🎶 Christine
You have a wonderful rest of your weekend as well, Christine.
Thanks, Tim. 📚🎶
Both of you are wonderful.
Your trees are all so full of natural beauty, Tim. And like the animals under your care, they brim with free spirit. One feels accepted simply watching them being the way they are. I regret I procrastinated coming to WP for too long, and joining your club so late. One can feel all the love and fun here. Thanks for providing a warm home in the blogoshere 🐱🦜🐍
Using the old cliché “better late than never”. I’m so happy you joined the blogosphere, Dot. I love your writing and Chinese stories full of wisdom and meaning. And I really love your Blue kitten sketches.
Look looking shape trees.
Well… I am claiming the beautiful Bamboo! 😉
Sorry Nancy. Dot already claimed the bamboo.
Well darn… Perhaps Dot would like to share a few. There’s a lot. 😎
I have a bambo stand by the main irrigation ditch. It’s not fancy bamboo like the black bamboo. It turns yellow in winter, but it’s a pretty green in the summer. I’ll do a photo of it when I go out to get more tree photos for Christine. You can always go for a fruit tree if you don’t want a cottonwood. I have a peach and nectarine that have interesting shapes.
Hmmmm Nectarine sounds fabulous!
I’ll include a photo of the firut trees in the trees for you and Christine in tomorrow’s post.
You know I love my tree and it is doing good work, thank you Tim.
You are welcome, Holly. You have a very special tree.
I do indeed thanks to you Tim. I’m taking good care of her.
I like how you made use of the magical powers in the Tangle-Heart Tree and Resa’s tree to make it home in your fabulous adventures saving the art gown models.
Without the magical Tangle-Heart and Resa’s tree the Mermaids would be bound to the sea forever! Thank you so much Tim, we need all the help we can get and you are super.
You are too kind and give me too much credit. Thank you, Holly. But you had to fight the dragon and do all the transporting around. You are the beautiful superhero here. Besides, you rode Route 66 on a motorcycle in real life. I’m forever impressed with that.
Oh, Tim, you are so amazing. Without Resa, you, the Trees, and Hyperion PBH would just be a figment. I did ride 66 on a Harley and I didn’t even kill myself so yes, yay for me!! 🙂
Sempre molto belle le tue foto, complimenti!
I would have picked Great Gnarly. Perfect pick for Teagan!
So glad Holly and I got in early on this tree picking thing. I have a feeling you might run out of trees!
Hi Resa. Dot claimed the bamboo, and then Nancy wanted it. Christine wanted the Blue Spruce, but I already offered it to Gloria. There’s competition for the trees now. I’m down to one unclaimed cottonwood on the property. You were the second person to ask for a tree.
HA! I knew this tree thing was going to take off.
You could offer shrubs? I know, it’s not the same.
Anyway… Mine is spectacular & Holly’s is magic and I hope you get the rest of the tree choices straightened out with the girls.
It’s all so cool!!!!!
I have a few trees that I think will make Christine happy. I don’t know if Nancy is interested in anything else. I do have some interesting fruit trees I might put on offer.
Fruit trees! Brilliant! Who wouldn’t want a fruit tree?
You just never know.

It’s always nice to meet another fan of Teagan, especially one with an interesting twist. I love the trees and the idea of matching them up with people. I also really like the image of the Atonement graveyard.
You’re so kind Dan. Thanks for visiting here.
I came here from Teagan’s place. I love the trees but also had a 280ZX. A story you might like. I was driving through Ohio (speeding) and was pulled over by a state trooper. He was interested in the “talking car” and asked for a demo. I did the “door is open,” and a few others. (I had the female voice and she could be quite frantic) After the demo, he said, “It’s too bad she doesn’t say,’ You are going too fast.”‘ We had a laugh and he let me go with a warning. I think the idea of allowing folks to pick a tree is unique and fascinating. Enjoyed the visit.
Hi John. That’s a great story. Mia, who is no longer blogging, started it all by claiming a tree that ended up in many of my photographs. She would comment “Is that my tree?” it a photo that included the her tree, although her tree was not the main subject. I started calling it Mia’s tree. Then Resa wanted a tree, and it’s unfolded from there. Claiming trees is a nice way to connect and share in the community. People can relate to the photos better when it’s their trees that are pictured.
I can certainly see that. Aren’t you going to run out of trees or do you double up?
I only have on unclaimed cottonwood on the property, but there are plenty in the bosque for people to claim.
Ha! I can just see that happening, John. I’m happy I could introduce you to Tim. His blog is delightful. Hugs.
It does look terrific, Teagan.
Hopping over from Teagan’s blog. Just beautiful, Tim! Your choice must have been difficult, Teagan.
It really was, Mary. But that pair of big gnarly old trees was so much like me, that I gave up the magical seeming blue spruce. I’m happy I could introduce you to Tim. His blog is wonderful.
Love that Blue Spruce Tim! We’ve thought about planting one here.
They are great trees. This one is 19 or 20 years old now. It’s about 16 feet tall.
What a lovely idea, Tim…Trees hold a fascination for me the older and more knarled the better…My view is of coconut palms and banana trees although beautiful they never get that stark beauty of a cottonwood when it has dropped its leaves…Pleased I dropped over from Teagans blog such lovely trees and even bamboo which is plentiful here…:)
Thanks, Carol. The cold gets tiresone, but the change in the trees makes for a nice variety.
I’m so happy I could introduce you to Tim and his delightful blog, Carol. There’s always something here that is fun or beautiful — or both. Hugs.
I was happy to find it, Teagan.. Trees are one of my favourite things… Hugs xx
These are fascinating trees. Perfect for Teagan.
That’s such a lovely thing to say, Robbie. Thank you. I’m glad you could visit Tim. Hugs.
Great collection of wonderful trees …
