This is the sixth posting in the series “THE TREE” which follows the life of a special Honey Locust tree in the Gardens at Waters East.  If you have not read the first posting, it might be most helpful for you to do that.  Go to the archives in this Blog and check out the posting – Beginnings - found on March 7, 2014.  Reading this short introduction will put this tree, this posting, and future postings in proper perspective.  It will be helpful.

This is a special "360" photo taken in the Gardens at Waters East.
The focus of attention is the Locust Tree, though much of the garden is in the photo.
A very unique way and unique photo to view the tree!

The photographer - Rivera - composting the photo above.

In this posting, you will view THE TREE from a number of different vantage points in the gardens.  You will see the “context” in which it stand and grows.  You will also view the area at the base of THE TREE seeing some of the plants that call that area home.

Enjoy your visit to THE TREE

 closeup of the red Daylily at base
It is the "accidental" daylily.
It came along with another plant and was unintended - but it looks nice
great red color.

 Even in storms - The Tree stands its ground.

 A final look at The Tree before leaving the gardens.

  1. Very nice! It looks perfectly happy in its beautiful setting. That 360 view is fascinating!

  2. loved this all round tour of your tree . p.s. we have a few thornless honey locusts in our London squares (as well as black locusts- very striking bark) Look forward to seeing more of yours in its natural enviroment as the year progresses
