I love this image of "Barnabas", our party/dinner tree. He's an old
(over 100 yrs we believe) Mesquite tree next to the house. In the Spring, he's covered in soft, green, fern like leaves.
But in the Winter, as seen here, he's stripped bare in all his nekkid glory.
I've always thought that he looks like a tree from the set designer on a Steven Spielberg or George Lucas movie.
