NAMED ANOTHER TREE


Those of you that follow the blog know that I have a penchant for naming some of the trees on our property.  "Barnabas the Party Tree" and "The Two Sisters" were the most recently named trees.


A couple of weekends ago, I was walking the property and noticed this tree.  In the Spring and most of the Summer, it is covered with leaves so that you can't really see its shape.  But now, with Winter rapidly approaching, most of the leaves have dropped off and that has revealed this shape.  When I looked at it from this angle, it reminded me of a dancer, quite graceful in it's growth, with her arms outstretched.

So henceforth (I love that word!), this tree shall be known as;
"GINGER"  (after Ginger Rogers of course)

Decidedly a female. Another tree that I would love to have in my yard, all of my trees(just 6) are straight, no lovely lines at all. Lucky you. Course you do live in Texas and thus need some compensation for the LONG, HOT HOT springsummerfall. ;-)

I thought "dancer" too upon first glance at the pic (before reading on). She's lovely.

i name our trees too...and i love your newest one's name, as well as the other two! trees are wonderful things to have - they are good for birds to roost in and they are really good to hug. i try to hug several trees every day - i think that's what makes me feel so good. make sure to hug yours every time you visit, eh - promise?

your friend,
kymber

I have a feeling you'd be the 'funnest' person to live with! Your enjoyment of life is so evident, and it's catching! Thank you for the many smiles you bring to my face.

"I think that I will never see,
A poem as lovely as a tree
A tree whose loving arms are pressed
Against the earths sweet flowing breast" - by Samuel Coleridge.
We have a fairy tree on our farm, your tree looks very graceful, just like a dancer and what a perfect name you've chosen.
Cheers

Oops my mistake - actually just checked and found that the poem was written by Joyce Kilmer !

I looked at that tree, and immediately thought, "Mae West", because it's so curvy!

Beautiful tree & I love the name.

Yep, female for sure. I wouldn't mind some regular straight trees too. Well, we do have a few think. The Two Sisters are straight and tall (not sure what kind of trees they are). Yes, we have a LONG HOT Spring Summer and Fall. You must have been here at some point, ha.

1st Man said...

Thanks! Yep as soon as I saw it it just reminded me of a dancer too. :-)

1st Man said...

The hardest part was finding a dancer silhouette that was similar, ha. Thank you as always!!

1st Man said...

LOL, that made me laugh out loud. 2nd Man said "what are you laughing at?", ha. Thanks!!

1st Man said...

Thanks!! It's funny to call a tree nice looking but she is huh? :-)

1st Man said...

Glad to know I'm not the only one. I'm a tree hugger from way back and darn proud of it. I talk to Barnabas all the time, ha. I'll give them all a hug for you. :-)

1st Man said...

*blush* You are so sweet. You know, ask any of my friends and they would probably agree with you. Thank you dear lady, as always. :-)

1st Man said...

Now that's a cool story to have. Sadly, I wonder how many young people today would even know who Ginger Rogers was? :-)

1st Man said...

Ha, thanks. I'm a dork, what can I say, LOL!

1st Man said...

I love that poem. I've heard it for years but never knew who it was. Thank you. And thanks for stopping by!!

1st Man said...

Ha, I wrote my comment above after reading this one. Thanks for finding the author, much appreciated!!

1st Man said...

Oooh, Mae West. I'll have to remember that name as I come across other trees on the farm. Thank you!!!

1st Man said...

Thank you for that! I'm not weird for naming trees am I? LOL! Thanks as always!!
