Sunday Trees – 374

Tree Ice

It is a grey, icy morning in North Carolina. Another of those winter storms is passing through, leaving a beautiful coating of ice on all of our trees, bushes, sidewalks, and roads. We have already had several instances of power blips, possibly presaging an outage. I thought everyone might enjoy a few photos of a tree ice sculpture created by nature.

Plaza San Francisco, Cartagena, Spain

This is the second tree from Plaza San Francisco. I posted the first tree on Sunday Trees – 362 on October 21st. Here is that photo:

This ancient pair of trees dominate the plaza and are just outside of a wonderful wine bar called ‘la loca JUANA’, the window of which is shown below:

I had a wonderful glass of local red wine and an absolutely delicious tapas dish. If you are in Cartagena, stop in and try their fare.
