A tree grows in Arizona…

I forget what part of the Apache Trail we were on when we stopped at this restaurant to eat.  I went outside to look at the patio and the volleyball area and could just imagine how hopping the place would be in a few months and no one would be wearing jackets like we were.  I had to stand in the sun and just let the warmth (mid 60’s at the time) wash over me.  I was drawn to this tree because it had green leaves on it and such a smooth bark.  I thanked it for letting me lean against it to take this photo so that when I was back home, where it would be cold and all of the trees would be bare, I could look at this image and feel like I was there again.

But I have no idea what kind of tree this is…any ideas?

(PS. The new system is about at 90% now – woohoo!)

  1. Ah, waiting for warm weather. A lovely the, though I’ve no idea the kind. The system is almost up! Great news!

    What a stately fellow. Nice shot, Teri! 🙂 Willows are related to birches. This one looks like both.

    No idea what type of tree it is but it is sure making me wish Spring would hurry up and come!

    No idea… what your tree is. I have a tree in the back yard that I have no idea what it is. It’s a normal tree, meaning it loses it’s leaves. HA HA HA We think it is an Ash. But never took the time to figure it out. I do like it for it’s shade… but dislike it for it’s falling leaves to pick up!!

    Great perspective and I know exactly what you mean, Teri. When I take a winter vacation to a warmer spot, it’s the trees that get my attention and I always photograph at least one of them. They’re both a fitting reminder of the warm vacation, as well as a promise of things to come back home.
