Back to the majestic Oaks of Beck
February 10, 2023
Two days with out energy and no warmth, with snapped timber making a harmful impediment course round our home, and all this occurring simply two years after Snowpocalypse, I packed a bag, picked up Mother and her canine of their chilly, darkish condo and went to Houston to spend just a few days along with his household. What a very good psychological well being determination that was! Not simply seeing household and having fun with the consolation of electrical energy, but in addition visiting the majestic 400-year-old oak timber in Beck’s Prime (the Augusta Dr. location) once more.
Ahhh, intact timber in all their glory!
I first wrote about these wonderful timber final August. This time, in early February, I observed ferns colonizing the sinuous horizontal branches of the timber. I think about they’re chilly local weather crops, showing in winter and dormant in summer time.
The ferns add a inexperienced hanging backyard impact to the magnificent timber.
As we sat beneath them, having fun with our lunch, a decided little customer pulled up a chair subsequent to ours and grabbed a potato chip.
We could not envy him. It was a phenomenal day, and we have been embraced by these stunning timber.
