My very first thought.Oh,my God that is a great one for Halloween. Very pretty but the tree makes it look sinister. Like a big monster trying to grab you. Love it!!

Hollywood needs that one for one of its Halloween movies.

Neat shot.

Thanks, Everyone!

That tree, a Live Oak, in the photo is the same tree that I post photos of here regularly.

It has been dead for a few years now, killed by lightning, and is about 50 feet tall...so I guess it's a Dead Live Oak?

Anyway, here is a photo of the same tree taken from the other side, looking back toward my house. This pic was taken back in May of this year.

As for what's blooming, if I had to guess I'd say a poppy of somekind. Maybe California poppy. But, is kentuck really in Kentucky? I'm not familiar with eastern wildflowers.

Thanks, all.

The flowers in the second photo are Coreopsis. We had an unusually wet Spring and it brought on the wildflowers.

We do have poppies that grow here also.

I live in southern Texas.

Kt they are amazing...wildflowers in TX are really something. So you have a photo of a vast amount of bluebells? I love them too. c

Not too many bluebells here, but maybe you meant bluebonnets? We have the most delicious Bluebell Ice Cream, though..MMMMM! Great stuff!

Here is a photo of some blubonnets taken back in late March.
