The tree is a live oak that has taken a bow down to the ground. We planted it the day that we brought our oldest son home from the hospital, who is now 35 years old. For a few years, it didn’t look like it was going to make it but now it is thriving. It is an evergreen. The children love to climb and play on the bowed down branch.
It also makes a great “sitting” for taking photos.
This is a view from my front porch during a rain storm. I love the rain. If you look closely, you can see rain falling. When it rains, I love to sit on my old country front porch in the swing and just watch and listen to the rain falling.
