Blue spruce. Notice the change in color further back in the stem. My guess is the green needles are from last year.
"I will make them and the places around My hill a blessing. And I will cause showers to come down in their season; they will be showers of blessing."

Here is a White oak showing growth of acorns and buds.
Here is a shot of acorns not fully grown. Photo taken 17-Jul-08
When the acorn is fully grown the cap will only cover 1/4 of the acorn. White oak acorns ripen in one season. The red oak group's acorns take 2 growing seasons to ripen.
Healthy trees relies on reproduction. Our walk with Christ also is only health when we are able to bring new people into a saving knowledge of Jesus. It is part of the armor of God listed in Eph. 6

This is a nice waterfall I go and see every once in a while. What I wanted to do with this video was to show how there is a spray of water that comes off the waterfall. When the water hits the pool of water below, some water is sprayed over the rock wall.
Just as the waterfall sooths a troubled heart, so the Lord will be soothing to those willing to wait and listen for Him.
"Therefore you will joyously draw water from the springs of salvation."

Here was an interesting Hackberry that has face like look. I see mock faces that you can buy from a store to put on a tree. Old fairy tales talk of trees being alive with faces. The Trilogy The Lord of the Rings has a part where trees take on a personality and are able to move around.
These fantasies are fun. For me I like to think of trees as glorifying God as they raise their limbs to sky in worship of Him. As the sun in the source of strength for trees so the Son Jesus Christ is my source of strength.

"Thus says the Lord GOD, "When I gather the house of Israel from the peoples among whom they are scattered, and will manifest My holiness in them in the sight of the nations, then they will live in their land which I gave to My servant Jacob.
They will live in it securely; and they will build houses, plant vineyards and live securely when I execute judgments upon all who scorn them round about them. Then they will know that I am the LORD their God."

The closest I can ID this is a Grooved Flax Linum sulcatum Ridd.
"One thing I have asked from the LORD, that I shall seek:That I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life,To behold the beauty of the LORD And to meditate in His temple."
