I have long enjoyed viewing posts in the bi-monthly Thursday Tree Love blog hop hosted by Parul at Happiness and Food.  For almost as long, I've thought I should jump in with some shots of our wonderful assortment of trees here in Caneyhead.  Well, today I have finally made it!  

This is a view looking up through the boughs of our sweetgum tree into the blue Texas sky.  Over half of the leaves have fallen already for autumn.  A little over half of those left are golden brown in the late afternoon sun.  The rest cling to green, like our Southeast Texas days cling to highs in the 80's.

I have had a fondness for sweetgums since my childhood.  I liked the velvety softness of their star shaped leaves.  The rich, cool shade they give in summer.  The way their bark peels and curls up to reveal a surface smooth as stone.  Many happy days playing in the deep San Augustine grass under a towering sweetgum in the backyard of the old rent house on Cooks Road.

Please join in and enjoy the other trees featured in this weeks edition of #ThursdayTreeLove.


  1. Beautiful click with a blue sky background, felt happy to see your tree post:)

  2. Temperatures in the 80's and blue skies. If only! Welcome to Thursday Tree Love, enjoyed your tree!

  3. It's so easy to take many of nature's gifts for granted, isn't it?

    1. Yep, it sure is. We hurry along, eyes on the road and then straight in the door when we get home because there is a meal to prepare, a show we want to watch, or we must freshen up and get ready to go out again. How many days go by before some walk all the way around their own house? What do we walk or drive by every day and never see?

  4. Pretty. You're having weather like we are :)

    1. From what I have seen as I go from blog to blog, this fall has been a mild one so far across a large portion of the country.

  5. Love it, love it, love it. Like you, I have a love affair with our trees. And sweet gum is a winner!

    1. One of the best things about our area is the plentiful abundance of a wide variety of trees.

  6. Welcome to Thursday Tree Love! So glad you joined. The blue sky as the back drop makes your tree so beautiful. I would love to see a sweetgum tree once. Not sure if it grows in India.

  7. Very pretty. This is my first introduction to a sweetgum tree. Fairly certain we don't have them here in Canada.

  8. Beautiful! You have wonderfully brought out the essence of the season.. I am not familiar with the Sweet Gum but will look it up now! Thanks for sharing :)

  9. Great photograph! Stopping by to say hello.

  10. Awesome, I really appreciate trees - the lungs of our earth. You've captured this one perfectly glistening in the perfect glow of the sunlight. I wonder if its a horse-chestnut or a maple. They have latin names which I've half forgotten by now.

    1. Thank you for your compliment! I don't know the Latin, but it is commonly called a sweetgum.

  11. Stopping by to wish you a Happy New Year. All the best in 2018!

  12. Hope you had a great holiday season and wishing you the best in 2018.

  24. Biorexin Reviews Are you certain you have to ride that ride? You'll improve your Best Male Enhancement Pills a lot. I am not completely right about Best Libido Booster. My idea is based around my assumption that nobody has an affection for connected with using that. That is how to quit worrying pertaining to Bed Boosters. With the right approach you can get plastic results with Male Enhancement Pills. Best Libido Booster is an opinion whose time has come. That is effortless and few of the people here as of now know that. If you won't understand that you're as blind as a bat.
