That’s my tree under the centre of the rainbow. It lives on Tim’s place in New Mexico, with others’ trees under the rainbow.
My tree has inspired me for several years now. Perhaps because Tim & I get a kick out of music parodies, I can’t stop singing “My Tree” to the tune of “My Girl”.
I’ve got sunshine
On a cloudy day
And when it’s cold outside
I’ve got the month of May
I guess you’ll say – What can make me feel this way
Talking bout my tree
For those of you who don’t know the song, or who would like to hear it again here is – My
Tree .. ahem Girl. “My Girl”
I call it Tim’s Magic Tree Sanctuary. The trees come in especially handy for the “Gowntoons”. Thank you dear Tim, for my tree!

This is briliant. Now I can’t get that song out of my head either. ‘Talkin’ about my tree..’ And the pcis of your tree are gorgeous.
That song has been in my head for daze!
Hopefully when I do the Biker Gowns post, another song will take its place.
My tree is looking for a career as a tree model. However, there isn’t a lot of positions available at this time.
That is shocking, a taletned tree like that should be numbe rone on the tree walk. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Resa and thank you again for the drawing of the gown.
True, but there are hardly any tree walks around.
We will have to settle for the Art Gowns catwalk, and the magic trees in the “Gowntoons”!
So happy you like the Biker Gown drawing. Holly and I have a cool post planned.
Hi Resa, it is lovely that you have your own tree at Tim’s place. Such a fun idea. I love the idea that you have a song for your tree.
You can’t go wrong
With a tree and a song!
(Finished reading the book. Now, to reread & watch all the videos as I go along!)
You so cheeky and lovely, Resa.
Those shots are magnique, and then you add your musical stylings and it’s BRAVA time!
Ohh, cheeky is good!
Brava MUAH Brava
It’s great Resa.
Tim’s Magic Tree Sanctuary or Paradise, as I call it! I’ve enjoyed seeing YOUR Tree thriving in every scene! …and now I’m expecting to hear the Tim ‘My Tree’ song too! 😉
Brilliant post, dahling! Aren’t we fortunate for having our Trees in this Tim’s magical garden?!
The song is a natural for My Tree.
We are most fortunate to have Our Trees in Tim’s magical garden.
They work out well in the “Gowntoons Adventures”, too!
Yes, I know!!!!!!
Ma girl, ma tree, ma girl… talking ’bout my…! Precious pics, dear friend. I’ve already been in love with your tree!😍😊🌹💖
Thank you, Alaedin!
It’s true, I have a gorgeous tree!
(🎼We’re too sexy for my tree!🎼)
Hmmm… but is it really your tree? Do you have an ownership contract proving that? I think not!
HA! Do I detect “Tree Envy”?
I think so!
Nonsense! I live in England, there’s a tree every three feet.
People are growing trees on their feet?
Yes. They’re called loafers.
So, people in the UK don’t like to work, eh? Just loaf around?
According to our government, yes, all the problems are causes by lazy people being too lazy to work. True, dat.
I got some new man slippers recently and they’re super nice. Better than loafers.
Sounds comfy! Will you be wearing them to the coronation?
Coronation Street? No. I don’t live near there. Also, that’s a TV show.
What about your new King? He’ll be onTV!
He will indeed, because I’ll be watching Nigel Hawthorne in The Madness of King George.
That’s a good movie!
One of me favourites!
Glorious tree photos and even its own song. 🤣🤣🤣
Yes, it has its own song. It insisted on it. What could I do? 🤔
You could only leaf it alone! 😆
True! After all it’s branching out into new areas.😆
It’s certainly not truncated. 😳😇
Okay, now you have me stumped! 🤔
I’m rooting for you to come up with a good one. 😛
I dunno? You might be barking up the wrong tree! 🤭
Oak-k, you may be right.
I’m a sap for thinking I could outwit you!
It’s a tree-t to engage in punning. 🌳
I wonder how fir we can take this? 🌲
I’m rooting for a long time.
Lovely tree photos, Resa, and a stroke of genius to “marry” those images to the famous Temptations song!
I suppose genius just happens.
I was thinking what kind of post can I do with My Tree… hmmm… My Tree … My Tree… Then it happened…Talkin’ bout my tree… the music kicked in!
The images lined up in my mind.
Of course after daze of singing “My Tree”,I’m hoping it will kick out!
The mind works in excellent ways. 🙂
What a beautiful tribute to your favorite tree! I love it!
Be well, dear Resa. xoxo
Thank you, Martha! It truly is a gem of a tree.
You be well, too! I insist! xoxo
You really showed off your showy offy tree. She is beautiful, magical and very imaginative — Like Resa, like Resa’s tree!
Aww, Thank you, Tim!
I always knew she was special.
Of course all your trees are special. That is why all of the AGMs have one.
The Tangle-Heart is outstanding. It might be a dead tree, but that only adds to its poetry.
It’s perfect for Holly! xo
I need to go check on the Tangle Heart Tree. Now that the owls are in the opposite direction, I haven’t been down by Shey’s tree or the Tangle Heart Tree.
Oh! Well, then yes! Do check on them.
Hopefully all is well there, and some new pics of both are in order. xo
Still, the owls are worth the detour!
This is fabulous … and Tim did a great job capturing your tree. The tree reminds me of this guy. https://images.app.goo.gl/Ljd32Zy2wmKRYLAVA … Great song, too!
I adore My Tree, and Tim takes fab shots of all the trees and wildlife (including insects 😵💫) on his place.
LOL! That guy poses like a tree!
The song is a classic.
I’ll be shooting you an email in the next day or two!
I love that you have put all the images of your tree in one post because she really is spectacular! She photographs beautifully and yes, that song is perfect 🙂
To have a special tree in Tim’s Magic Tree Sanctuary is a wonderful thing!
Agree, dear Thunder!
My tree is glamorous. All of our trees are.
I’m quite happy that all of the AGMs have a tree.
Tim’s Magic Tree Sanctuary is a wonderful place. I feel lucky.
However, I’ll resist going to the casino. xoxo
Yours and Holly’s really stand out!
I love my tree, too. It’s the coolest thing to each have one in Tim’s sactuary.
Smart idea. The house always win when it comes to casinos. xoxo
xoxo Sent the mail to Frank!
A singularly special tree made even more so by your outstanding post
which not only includes year round (seasonal) photos of it but a unique
song that makes it even more special as a very beautiful tree! hurry Resa!
I’m lucky. to have this tree on Tim’s place.
It’s a unique Cottonwood tree.
It picked a special place to grow under the dramatic New Mexico skies.
The tree, the song, the thank you are all part of a certain feature of nature…. love.
Big HUGS, Eddie, and happy May!
Keep finding those extra special things to shine
your light on Resa. It is a great post!
peaceful, happy days, hugs, Eddie
…. and a big kiss!
should have read ‘hooray Resa’
That auto mistake feature is quite annoying!!! 🤗
It certainly is!
You definitely have one of the most beautiful trees on Tim’s property, love these photos! 😍
Thank you, Tiffany, and I agree!
I knew she was special when I first laid eyes on her. Time has borne this out.
Tim has captured her beautifully over the years. 😍
Wowza. What stunning photos! They’re gorgeous, and of course, your tree makes the perfect subject against those skies. Beautiful, Resa.
Thank you, Diana!
I adore my tree.
Tim captures it beautifully.
I love that you have a tree, and that it gets photoed. We have a gnome tree, but it’s hard to capture because it’s in the woods. 🙂 There’s always treasure buried between the roots.
You live in a wonder place.
Not that I know what a gnome tree is exactly. I looked it up and saw pics of small conifers with gnome hats. LOL!! xo
LOL. Ours is a giant cedar about 8 feet around!
No wonder you laugh! I just figured it out!
Beautiful series Resa!
Thank you, Cindy! ❦
Resa, you sure can carry a tune. A great tribute to your tree, and Tim does a fantastic job of portraying its presence against those beautiful, colorful skies of his. Great work by you both!
I can carry a tune in a basket, but not in a key!
Yes, Tim captures my tree, beautifully. The skies are crazy wild where he lives in New Mexico.
Thank you, Bruce!
I couldn’t stop staring at the first picture with the rainbow and then I scrolled down – wow, such a nice tree standing through time!
Thank you! Yes, the tree is a stunner. It sure found its place on earth.
So happy you like it!
That tree looks like it’s dancing! Definitely deserves a dedication.
Hey, it does look like it’s dancing. Great take JT!
Lovely tree and terrific song. Thanks for sharing both. OX OX OX OX
Thank you, dear John!
OX OX OX OX
OX OX OX OX
“Now if 6 turned out to be 9,
I don’t mind, I don’t mind”
It’s the quality of the OXen that counts.
Yes the quality counts.. Adore you.
I LOVE this! I remember “My Girl” very well, part of the soundtrack of my youth.
You had a pretty great soundtrack.
Sometimes I enjoy listening to the classic rock station when I sew.
Music is special.
Indeed it is! Music can instantly transport us to another place and time.
It’s beautiful…just like you.
Thank you, Gi! ❤️
Hugs and xxoo
I’m trying to follow you AGAIN, for the millionth time. Hope it works.
WP is just glitchy! You know where I am. Don’t worry!
This is absolutely fabulous! I am smiling big at your and Tim’s “ My Tree” creation . No one has a better sense of humor and wit than Tim ( and you of course) . Suddenly I’m inspired:
🎶I’ve got sunshine on a Cloudy ⛅️ day, I guess you’d say what can make me feel this way… My Meece, talkin bout My Meece “ 🎶.
A fine and well served tribute to Time and his amazing trees. Cheers 🥂 To you both !
LOL!!! 🎼My Meece!🎼
Love it dear Meece!
Cheers all around 🥂🥂🥂🥂🥂
Tim deserves praise for his love of nature & cats.
We have done well with his beautiful trees!
Finished the drawing with the mic dropping. I’ll take a pic tomorrow, even though it’ll be dark all day.I can always reshoot it on the sunny day they say we are getting in 4 or 5 days.
I got caught in hail today. Sigh!
Tims trees are magnificent! So much beautiful nature at his place. So much talent too.
I can’t wait for the mic drop… it’s been nasty here too , we had some hail. I did get a great video of the Space X Falcon 9 launch at Cape Canaveral yesterday. It’s on IG. xoxoxo
I’ve been not allowed back in. I won’t give them my birthday. I could lie. But… I suppose I am annoyed big time by all the data THEY gather on us.
I might have to reconsider, now that Twitter and WP are divorced.
I’d love to see the shot!!!! xoxoxo
If you think of it when we are mailing, throw it in the Meecebox. 🐭📬🐭
I know, what do they need that for. It’s on Twitter too. 🐭🐭😶😶
Just liked and RT’d on Twitter.
Okay… going to go draw.
Will send some pics tomorrow and ideas/info re: the post.
Frank got back to me. PLUS I’ve got to throw Rebecca’s outfit by you. If ever there was a hard drawing, it’s RB in a Palazzo Pants biker look! 🐭🐭🙃🙃
Okay, dying to see! I can imagine , it’s been a long time since palazzo bike pants were in style 🐭🐭
It’s hysterical! Just sent it!!! xoxoxo
Omg I’m cracking up! I can’t get that song out of my head now! Lolol. What a fun post and gorgeousssssss pics! I do love your Tree pic. ❤ xx
Debby, just sharing my insanitree! 🤣😵💫
Lmao, another good one! 🙂 🙂 🙂 xox
🙂 🙂 🙂 xox🙂 🙂 🙂 xox
Beautiful and heartwarming, I love the ever so many faces of the tree, always prancing through the colours of the seasons.
Thank you, Oloriel!
It’s a gorgeous tree. I’m happy you got to see it! xo
I will be humming that tune all day! Such a beautiful tree 🙂
Stunning photos and beautiful tree!
Now the song is going through my head. 🙂
Yes, my tree is a beaut, and that song is sticky one! 🙂
I have a tree but she is a two hour drive and a two hour hike away from my house. I don’t get to visit her often. She stands alone the only tree above “tree line” at 9,000 feet and her center has been burned hollow…. She is the only tree that high in the surrounding mountains. She is very old and has lots of small children growing in a circle around her base. She has seen so much and still supports bird nests and life in her branches during the warm months… in the winter the winds are strong and the snow probably reaches well into her lopsided canopy 10 feet high. I love her and understand why you feel connected to your “my” tree. One day I will write a book about my tree.
Something beautiful here, in photos and song 🎶 ~ such a perfect tribute of photos showing her in all her diverse beauty.
Thank you! My tree is a beauty, and Tim takes the best pics of it.
Thw word wonderful cannot grasp the feeling these photos give . Thanks! 👏🏽👏🏽
You are welcome! The pics are fab!!! I adore my tree.
OK I blame you if I’m singing 🎶 My Tree, er, I mean My Girl 🎶 all night!! And Tim is to blame too, of course 😉
I know! It’s so catchy. x
You’re tree is beautiful Resa! Blessed are we to have one of Tim’s trees! ❣️
Love my treeeeeeeeee!!! ❣️
Meeeee too.. Yours is gorgeous! ❣️
I picked early! Fell in love the moment I saw it! 💞
Oh it’s a gem like you!!! 💗
