Majestic. It’s the word that comes to mind when I see these spectacular live oak trees in the neighborhood. They’ve been here a while and some are so dramatic. I love the little bits of light from the sunrise in this tree. Leading you on a path to the greater beyond. This particular tree is quite large and stunning.
Even the trees in the distance are stunning with their long reaching limbs covered in Resurrection Fern. Our neighborhood works hard to keep these trees as close to natural as possible. Utilities have to trim but it’s stressful and we are very fortunate (and grateful) that they’ve been careful in our area.
One thing is certain, we have very happy squirrels in this area. They run from tree to tree. These trees were a huge draw when we first saw our house many, many years ago. It looked like the perfect place to live, nestled among the trees in close proximity to downtown and in walking distance to shopping and restaurants (and more importantly, the library!) What do you think of when you see trees like this? They’re like something in a movie… and they have been in movies. Halloween (filmed back in 2018) – that was super cool to watch and be a small part of. Jamie Lee Curtis is amazing, and well loved here in Charleston, SC.
