Welcome to my zone 9 garden. My roots are deeply planted in the sandy soil of sub-tropical central Florida, where the summers are long and hot, but the rest of the year is paradise!

A Cool Old Man

Our neighbors have a GIANT of an oak tree in their yard. One day as we strolled by it, we noticed it had a face on it. We had actually looked at this tree many times before but never noticed it. It looks so natural that it is not easy to see upon first glance. It makes you wonder how much we miss around us because we don't take the time to really look at something. I've never seen a tree face like this, but it's really cool. The tree actually looks as though it's alive (of course, it's alive - it's a tree), and I want to pull up a chair and listen to his stories of all that he has seen in his long life.

Very Interested, if that tree could talk the stories it could tell

Rose...It is a little scary especially when you notice it for the first time.

Rusty...I only wish it could talk to me. That would be really COOL! Hope you're enjoying your neighbor's mangoes still!

I've seen these before but they usually look extremely fake. This one looks so creepily real.
