Cypress Knees..........hmmmmm........

I wanted to share some more quotes with you guys today since it's been a while since I've posted any. BUT..... before I do, I want to share a few pictures first. I forgot to post these with my pictures from our Dixie trip. I'm not sure how I forgot seeing as how these are probably my favorite ones.....

For those of you who don't know, these are Cypress Trees and the divided/separated portions just above the water line are called Cypress Knees. I have to admit---- I LOVE cypress kness! II was so amazed when I 1st saw these things. We have cypress where I live but you can't really see the knees on them. So when we travel south, to Dixie, the Delta, the swamps- whatever you wanna call it- I am blessed to get to see these amazing knees!! (yes, I'm kinda weird and probably the only person who thinks these things are cool)...

I think they are so amazing although I'm not quite sure why yet. I think it's because they are so unqiue. AND I'm weird like that....Anyhow, I made the hubby pull over on our way home so I could get some pictures of them and wanted to share. Hope you enjoy them! It's the simple things that entertain me! :)

So, now back to the quotes.....
