Winter Wednesday - Majesty

Winter.
Cedar of Lebanon, Montpelier (Virginia) January 2017

What is more majestic than a huge tree on a winter morning.  This historic tree dates from the time of James Madison, possibly dating from the 1820's.

Although we didn't walk through them due to weather, the forests on this property are a National Natural Landmark.

  1. Hi Alana, Wow, you are doing great on the Ultimate Blog Challenge. And the tree in your photo is spectacular! Also, thank you for teaching me something new ... "National Natural Landmark" ... I did not know about that designation. Very interesting and I want to see if we have any of those out here in Washington State. Thanks for sharing your blog.

  3. Interesting. Not as majestic as when it would be adorned with leaves.

  6. That tree is beautiful, and I love the feel that the black and shades of grey give to the tree.

  7. One does here much about our founding fathers Madison or Monore.

  8. I do love how trees change in appearance from season to season (in our states that have four seasons!) That one is spectacular! Thanks for sharing.
