One of my favorite things about my friend Cindy's house here in Texas is the Live Oak tree in her front yard. Live Oaks are *everywhere* here. It is not a tree that grows in Metro Atlanta. But it is one that I love. I love the curves of the branches. I love that each tree has a unique character. I love that they would make great climbing trees. And I love the "romance" of them...as I envision them lining a drive, and creating a mysterious canopy drizzled with Spanish Moss.
