The squiggly branch evergreens that are common in Florida. (March 11, 2015)
[Several evergreen trees with open branches that bend and swirl in irregular sections from the main branch. These are long-needled trees which have more greenery on the upper portions of the tree.]

A portion of the Forest Tower park through which I often exercised. (May 18, 2014)
[40-60 foot tall trees full of leaves hade this park. In this image is a bench along the sidewalk.]

Looking upward through one of the trees in Forest Tower park. (August 19, 2015)
[A web of many, many branches swirl out from the trunk of the tree. The outer portions of the branches are the ones with the long needles.]

Sycamore tree on the driveway to the Sam's Club parking lot as the leaves were starting to change color. (October 8, 2105)
[Approximately 50 foot globe-shaped tree with white bark and yellowish leaves stands out agains the evergreens behind and beside it. The sky is clear blue.]

Same tree as the prior photo as I look up the trunk.
[The bark on this tree is bright white. The yellow-green leaves on the tree cast shadows on the trunk. Some blue sky is seen between the leaves.]

This sycamore tree has lost some of its leaves in this sunset image. (November 16, 2014)
[Approximately 50 foot globe-shaped tree with only about one quarter of the leaves remaining on the branches. The sky behind the tree is of blue, grey, and faintly pink.]

A new shoot coming from the base of the magnolia tree.
[The new shoot is approximately three feet high and is full of leaves and has a magnolia fruit at the very top. The shoot curves out from the base of the tree trunk before heading vertical. The tree trunk is about six inches in diameter.]

The holes in these leaves created interesting patterns. (August 14, 2015)
[A vine-type plant is wrapped around a wood post that is part of a barbed wire fence. Some of the leaves are so eaten away that only the outline and veins are still there and visible. Other leaves have a bit more greenery, but still have a lot of holes in them.]

Sweet gum leaves (September 25, 2015)
[A close view of a bunch of five-pointed star-shaped leaves. The leaves are green with tinges of purple at the edges.]

I don't know what kind of leaves these are, but I thought the color was interesting. (October 8, 2015)
[A close view of four large leaves individually attached to a branch in a row. The veins of the leaves are a much darker green than the rest of the leaf which is a yellow-green.]
