Distractions While Watching Golf

My son had his first golf meet of the season yesterday and the weather was beautiful even though it was a bit windy.

I was hoping he wouldn't notice me laying on the ground taking pictures. (I had to desaturate the trees so you could see him better.)

I love golf.  I love my son.  BUT, watching golf can be a bit I took pictures of the neatest tree!  Natural pom poms!!

The bark is coming off the tree and it is so neat.  I don't know what kind of tree it is, or if the bark sloughing off is a sign of it dying or just unique to the tree.  Anyone know?

My husband and I are very tall. :) 


  1. you're neat. and i love this post. i'm sure he didn't notice laying on the ground...hopefully you army crawled into position.

    i never tire of tall shadow shots.

  2. My sycamore tree gets "pom poms" like that every year...and it sheds "skin" in long pieces like crazy....and has gnarled branches like the one in your pics too.
    My tree is so ancient that no matter how hard I try, I can never see the top of it. My father told me once that sycamores have the largest root structure you can imagine...sometimes I wonder if my tree's roots are under every house on the block.

    1. Thank you! I'd love to plant one. Have you ever collected the "skin" or the pom poms?

  3. I think you made great use of your 'golfing' time, fab pics and yes look at those legs, how ever do you get trousers to fit?? lol...Mx

  4. Hey Jill...looks just like the Sycamore in my front yard. When we first bought the house we though it was dead because all the other trees were leaving out. Nope...that's just it's nature...last to get its leaves and last to lose them. And the leaves are HUGE!

    I love following your blog by the way!! Leann

    1. Geesh! though = thought leaving = leafing Guess I need more coffee. :)


Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit!
