Sunday Trees

Becca at “On Dragonfly Wings with Buttercup Tea” hosts Sunday Trees each week. This was taken a few years ago with my iPhone5 in March in Winter Park, Florida. I have no idea what kind of tree this is!

    Hard to tell since the tree seems to be budding, with no leaf, or full flowers, it looks like a tropical tree, like a Ceiba, or a Fire tree?

    • You might be absolutely right! I have no idea what kind of tree this is other than it was in Florida! πŸ˜‰

      wow – sounds like you know your trees – and I enjoyed this comment

      • I should look up those trees. I just never learned the names of plants or trees!

          I have some down – but I think that folks who know a lot – well they have clues they use like folks identify birds –
          like in the comment above – she noted the leaves would have helped her.

          Basic tree identification tips
          Look at the leaves or needles. Is it a broadleaf (usually deciduous) or is it a conifer (usually with needles or scales)?
          Different features will be present through the seasons. You can use twigs, leaf buds and bark on leafless winter broadleaf trees.
          Take notice of the surrounding area such as hedgerows, fields, parks, woodland or close to water. Some species are more likely to grow near water, in scrubland, parkland or in woodland.
          Use as many features as you can, the more you use the more certain your identification will be. Take into account the overall shape and size of the tree, bark, leaves or needles, flowers, fruits, leaf buds and twigs.

          Shape, size and bark are often the most memorable features of a tree.

          Overall appearance, size and shape
          Some trees have a distinctive overall appearance and shape that can be used to identify them, especially from a distance. Compare a silver birch with its narrow shape and light and airy crown to the broadly spreading crown of an oak.

    Love the strong trunk to the right, Linda – this feels like I could hang art paintings around this tree – or it just seems ready to be used by a human.
    Nice upview

    I see a giant stick man jumping down on me with outstretched arms. πŸ™‚ That’s just me I suppose.
