Pleasant Places

When we were at Pleasant Places last week, we drove to Fredericksburg for a couple of plant errands. On the property of one of the plant nurseries we went to was this enormous live oak tree, obviously native to Texas.

You simply must see it to feel its stately and loving grandeur. Can you see me standing next to it in a black t-shirt? Don't I look tiny?

Texas A & M put the oak at 750 years old. Wow! I Googled old trees and one of the oldest-in-the-world recorded trees was 5,000 years old in Utah. It was cut down in 1964.
