Beautiful photos, Tim. Everything looks great against a blue sky. The sky in the last photo (Resa’s tree) is stunning!
It’s always great to have a virtual walk through your place. 🙂
Those are beautiful photos of the Sandias and river, and the trees!
Their trees are absolutely stunning in that light. Beautiful!
They are. I got a different view from the ditch bank for most of the shots. Thanks, Dale.
I love the heart tree. And the detail in the Resa’s tree is gorgeous. Great photos.
Wonderful photos Tim. Nature’s always so inspiring.
Nice! I was wondering how my tree was looking! Thank you for the update!😁
It’s a really gnarly old tree. Thanks, Tiffany.
Sigh… big time! Your painter has taken over the mountains too!!!!
Sandia is “Watermelon” in Spanish. The painter knows how to make us happy. Thanks, Marina.
Oh, the painter certainly does… in combination with the photographer!!!! And that’s the perfect name for them! 😉
Yes it it. The Sandias have inspired bands like the Watermelon Moutain Jug Band, and many other people, business and other entities to use Sandias or Watermelon Mountian as names.
Aw… saw my tree with these other lovely trees. Made my day xxx Thank you.
You are welcome. You have a beautiful tree. Thanks, Shey.
Thank YOU Timothy
Thanks, Charlotte. You have not claimed a tree.
I love trees full of pink blossom, have you photographed one like that Timothy?
Yes. When the apple and peach trees are in bloom.
The heart tree is my fave!
It’s magic. Thanks, Teri.
The silhouette shots of the trees are really impressive.
Thanks, Maj & Sher. Gnarley cottonwoods without leaves look great in silhouette.
The pink Sandias are heavenly, what a great photo of their majesty. Really liked the wintry silhouetted tree photos, and each one named, demonstrating your connection and affection. Great photos, Tim. I have found I love seeing your various renditions of the Tangle Heart Tree.
Thanks, Jet. The Tangle Heart Tree is magic. Old, gnarly cottonwoods look so good in silhouette.
Ahh, the Cottonwood Collection! Fantastic.
Again, with Resa’s tree…. but can I pick ’em or what? And you sure have taken some luscious pics of it.
Is Holly’s Tangle-Heart a dead Cottonwood?
The Tangle Heart Tree and Mia’s tree are dead. But they are among the living dead as they are both magic.
I see that! I didn’t actually know Mia’s tree was dead. It seems quite branchy, at least compared to the Tangle-Heart.
I’m glad you don’t get rid of them. I like this life of beauty after death example.
Just read your answer to Jet!
So, all of our Cottonwoods best days are yet to come!!!
All the cottonwoods on our property are probably between 75 and 100 years old, with the exception of Lavinia’s tree which is 18 year old. We raised Lavinia’s tree from when it was a twig.
The tangle heart tree was not very old when it died. It died along with several other cottonwoods growing close to the levee during the drought in 2013.
How neat… from a twig! Love that.
Oh wow, a drought! Bummer.
So my tree is at least 75 years old? Very cool!
If you look at the tree on the far left behind the outhouse in the photo of our property in the post “Parallel Cataverse”, https://wp.me/p1yQyy-5C9, you can see what your tree looked like in 1958. It was probably around 25 years old then, which would make it about 87 years old.
Well, my tree has seen a lot, then. Lol!
An outhouse and goat house, cool! 😀
I think Resas tree might be the star of the show! Fabulous images Tim 🙂
Thanks, Julie. Resa agrees.
