Does anyone know what kind of tree this is? My Grandma and Grandpa Country had a couple of these trees around their house back in the day and I have always enjoyed sitting in the shade under one of these trees. I might have to go scouting around the local nursery to figure this out.

It is Monday and it is lunch time already. I am working from home today and I have to admit that while the weekend went by way too quickly, I’m feeling pretty good today. I feel like there’s a thunderstorm thinking about forming for the afternoon, as the hazy, lazy days of summer are definitely upon us. The fans are doing their best to keep us cool here at The Manor. They are mostly successful.

The outside thermometer says its 95ºF. Seems like it’s a good day to sit in the shade.
