Shapes of Trees- the Mystery Cherry

 
Continuing the series of winter tree shapes, I bring you the mystery tree that has been determined to be some sort of cherry. Probably an agricultural cherry gone wild. Past posts listed at the end follow the clues if you are interested.

In any case, it's a really handsome tree in any season, even winter.

I love looking across my back field to see what it looks like. Here's the summer version

And in fall it's usually a beautiful flaming orange.

It's even served as the avatar for this blog when Entrecard was alive and kicking.

Which brings me to an interesting coincidence. A blog I followed back then by Jerry Beuterbaugh would feature other blogs that had family-friendly content every Sunday. Jerry has taken this a step farther, and now has a site called Site Hound Sniffs that is a compilation, by category, of blogs you don't need to be wary to visit. He let me know yesterday about his new site, and I've provided a graphic... using this tree, and done in the style of the old avatar. If you're looking for some other interesting blogs to visit, check out his lists.

I remember that avatar very well. Those Entrecard days were interesting and had me in touch with a lot more bloggers than I follow these days.

I sure dont miss all the dropping from the Entrecard days but it led me to so many wonderful blogs
