TreeSquare Challenge; I Love Trees!

Welcome to my #treesquare challenge post for BeckyB’s Challenge for the month of July. I absolutely LOVE trees almost as much as I love flowers and thankfully many trees have flowers so I’m in love with this challenge. I hope to share more than just a couple of posts of my tree photo collection. I may go through my photos to see what I have taken over the last few years as well. I was visiting my daughter this last weekend when we came upon this tree house on our way to breakfast. She lives in a small town in Orcutt, and breakfast was around the corner. We had a wonderful time there and the weather was PERFECT! Always cool as she lives near the ocean along the California coast!

This was the weekend before last when my daughter was home visiting us and her best friend. We had a girls day where we shopped and ate in downtown Riverside. Lots of cool old buildings with lots of mature old trees! We had a fun day together and I couldn’t resist a photo or two of our outing!

I often like to have a theme as that is how my brain works. I think with this treesquare challenge my theme is visiting with family and a few different locations with beautiful trees. I may not always have a theme, but when I can make it work it helps with the flow of my thoughts and I hope makes my posts more enjoyable! I have one more tree photo I will end with as I was with my son and his wife and my grandkids this last weekend. I was visiting my daughter when my son called and said they wanted to drive to California for an impromptu visit! So we left my daughter’s early to meet up with my son and family.

As we waited for the fireworks to start we watched the setting sun and I asked my son to take a couple of photos for me as I left my phone inside. We were at my daughter-in-law’s Aunt’s house, so sweet they invited us all to join them for a BBQ. It was a great time and I was able to spend some time with my grandkids too. It has been such a busy last couple of weeks, but it’s all a GOOD busy! With lots of fun, love and family time. I hope you enjoyed my tree photos and I thank you for visiting and thank you Becky for this wonderful challenge!

Tree Crazy Gal!

    1. Thank you Xenia, I’m so happy you enjoyed my photos and it was so wonderful to spend time with family. My horses and dogs did well through the fireworks. My one dog who gets more scared is getting pretty old and is nearly deaf now, so he did good. I will give Chloe and Murphy big pats and sending pats back to Eivor and Pearl! πŸ’•πŸ€—πŸ€ πŸ΄πŸ’•

  3. Hi Tree Crazy Gal
    your post reminds me why I like blogging so much – we get to see different parts of the country and world – and get a personal take on it with one of a kind photos
    and all three photos show California diversity –
    love each one for different reasons – the second one is cool because of the daughter and friend spilt the frame – bookmark it – and then the stagers on the bench – nd the tree lined path with shade and richness
    – the third one is that golden hour with California palms and the cool car lower right – felt like a scene from a movie
    – and the first photo – crazy cool -t he foes looking up – the keep out sign
    and so let’s see –
    we have the awesome Tre e- the tree hose, the fence made of food, and then chopped wood for a fire through the gate – and a back tree –

    oh and let me not forget the second photo – your daughter there has that personal touch and gives us scale for the size of that tree right with the nice lines of the back ones left

    well done – and now I am off to see the part 2

    1. Thank you so much Yvette!! I love blogging so much for the same reasons. Seeing the world through blog posts and their beautiful photos, and interpretations. Oh the list of all the countries let alone all the states here in the U.S. to see is so amazing!! ❀️
      Thanks for all your wonderful comments, they all mean a lot to me as you see what I see when I see that photo op, and I think that one will be perfect for it’s individuality!! You are so sweet, and I enjoyed your response immensely!! This is so much fun and I do enjoy sharing! Thanks again for stopping by!!! β€οΈπŸ’œπŸ’šπŸ’™
