It belongs to the park and in turn to everyone but it has become my tree. I’ve photographed this oak tree (see it in all four seasons here) in the Alum Creek State Park for years now yet I never tire of it. So on Christmas day when we decided to go out and take some photos in and of the snow DH asked me “Do you want me to drive past your tree?”
He knows me so well 💕
PS. Our visiting snowy owl is still hanging out behind and to the right of the tree here; it blended into the snow very well! Someone local captured a photo of it eating a rodent so she is managing visiting here just fine.
