One thing I love about my home is that it's *always* green. Not that each tree is. Many of them die off in the winter, but the pines and the live oaks are green year round. I can get homesick for pines and oaks.
This is a magnolia in a wooded area. Lot's of wooded areas and forests to wander through.
Visitors love the spanish moss that hangs from everything. Eh-- I'm not wild about it. It's pretty, but it eventually grows all over the tree and the sunlight can't reach the leaves. Not so great for the tree. Crape Myrtles. They're pretty and smell nice. And I used to climb all over them. I'd hang upside down from them and
do back flips and somersaults out of them. My mom hated it! But they were only thing around that was small enough to climb.
Mimosa trees are pretty and grow in a nearby ditch.
