Trees With Personality

 

Trees have always fascinated me, especially when I see unusual and/or beautiful ones.  When I was a kid, I loved to draw them.  As an adult, loved going into the New England states in Autumn to welcome the gorgeous Fall foliage.

Here are some I collected on my Pinterest board, “Trees With Personality.”  The captions are the first thoughts that came to mind as I first viewed these trees.
