Stopping to Appreciate the View

As I was finishing up my work outside yesterday evening, I turned toward the house and saw the most amazing view.  The sun was shining and making our pecan tree GLOW!  I pulled my trusty point-and-shoot camera from my pocket, to capture the scene so I could share it with all of you.

I love this view because it shows the enormous size and the MAJESTY of this tree.  The pavilion is cool and shaded, cradled beneath the huge branches.  It is a great spot to sit with friends ... and the perfect setting for our daughter's wedding. 

We are almost done with our modifications to the pavilion, and I will share the befores and afters with you soon.  For now, I have to switch gears to finish the last few things to prepare for my Open House on Saturday.  Are you coming?


  1. That IS a pretty magnificent tree! It umbrellas over the entire area. The wedding is going to be so gorgeous in that setting... can we come renew our vows there? Just kidding, but WOW, it's just such a peaceful and gorgeous place.

  2. Isn't it exciting when you step back and something beautiful is before your eyes? Sometimes we get lost in our work - it's nice to be confronted with the majesty of nature. Fabulous tree!

  3. Wish I could answer YES! What an amazing tree. Oh, the stories it could tell.

  4. Dear Connie, I hope your Open House went well today! How I wish you were within driving distance. Your tree is amazing! Look forward to seeing the pavilion when it is completed. P. x

  5. Very lovely! Hope you had a great turn-out for your Open House.

  6. That is a gorgeous pecan tree!

  7. Connie,

    I hope the open house went swimmingly! Sorry I couldn't make it. My little Black Ice has one tiny bud and has sent up several new canes. It seems to be pretty happy in its new home.

    Can't wait to see the before and afters. That tree is amazing!
