Favorite Things Friday

I am, once again, linking up with Quilting in My Pyjamas for Favourite Things Friday .. to see what others have claimed as their favorites this week, click on the link.

My favorite thing this week is the tree outside the Lake Breeze resort in Eagle Harbor, Michigan.  The tree is about 100 years old and lives through the harshest of conditions in the winter.  There used to be two trees, but about 15 or so years ago the other one died or was blown down.

Whenever I am there, I take a picture.  So, here are some pictures of THE TREE.

Great compositions of The Tree!

That tree is getting slightly taller every year but not much fuller. Do you know what kind of tree it is?

I love iconic landmarks and this tree certainly fits the bill. I can see why you love it so much.Thank you for sharing it with us this Friday!

Love that tree and that it hasn't really changed much over the years. Now if that tree was here it would be doubled in size by now.

I love your tree! I love that you love that tree! I really enjoyed seeing it in all seasons. I wonder about the tales it could tell.
