Oh Those Knees

I have always found the knees of the Bald Cypress trees fascinating.

(It may be because my Mamaw had one in her living room.)

So when the Edisto Memorial Gardens also had a Cypress Swamp walkway,

I found myself knee-deep in my deeply-rooted fascination.

I could not believe the diversity in shape and arrangement.

One group even looked like a nativity scene.

Yes, there were roses! I will eventually get to those.

But for this post we will be lovin’ on some Taxodium distichum parts.

The roots are unusual, but so are the cones.

My cousins did get a tiny bit of attention during the visit.

Next come the roses and some fowl.

Stick around folks.
