BARNABAS IS NAKED


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.

    1. Ha, thanks! For the longest time we just called it the party tree. Seems like whenver there are people over they are drawn to the tree. Our future plans include putting a dining table under it and making it sort of the outdoor dining area. So it just HAD to have a name. :-)

    1. It's one of two or three on the property but it by far has the best character. We need to get to the other ones on the property and clear out around them and open them up to the world once again. Thanks!!!

    1. Trees are so different in Winter aren't they? You really get to see a beauty underneath that you can't the rest of the year.

  10. I love trees in winter. So much more character. And they seem so vulnerable. Your tree is very handsome for a nekked tree.

    1. I never thought about the fact that they show a vulnerability you don't see other times. Thanks!
