    It is impossible to have such an oak in the course of life.
    I planted an oak from an acorn in 2002
    Now it looks like this:

    Spruce, which is nearby, has grown since 2007.

    Oak Alley is the best outdoor wedding venue. The photos are amazing.

    She's growing well. Consider it your gift to future generations. A couple on my property are over 150. This is my eldest, and I say thank you to whomever (or whatever) planted her. This is my eldest, around 200.

    I have some lettuce in my garden that I've left to go to seed... and yes, it does have yellow flowers that turn to puffs, just like a dandelion

    Top is lily, middle is marigold that is great in a vegetable garden because it keeps many of the bad bugs away and the bottom pic is calendula

    These look like peonies, beautiful flowers

    You should really get rid of those vines crawling up your Live Oak.
