The knobby above ground growths are a part of the root system. Weird to look at. This tree will grow in the water, but this one is on the bank of the lake.

Thanks, Morris & Jacques, glad you learned something new. Warbler, that sounds really cool with the lamp. These trees are all over my lake. Thanks for stopping by.

Great photo texas. I have a double knee that is about 18 inches tall that was made into a lamp many years ago.

Wow, Morris, I didn't realize you guys were that far apart. I thought you were neighbors. Matter of fact, I didn't know Ill was that big! Mary, I love these trees too, and it's so strange the way they love the water. Maybe they're akin to ferns, their foliage looks like it.

I love these trees Texas.We have lots of them here too,especially in swampy areas.The ones that empress me most are at Reelfoot Lake in the NW corner of TN.That is probably because I really love that lake.

Not this far North, tex. Chickie is almost 400 miles south of me.

Robryan, my pleasure! Morris, I would have thought you have these trees too. Chickiemama has seen them. I took this picture for her in the fall.

Well, since we don't mow at the lake, it's perfect! Very beautiful tree.

This tree would be a little hard to mow around! Never seen anything like it before.

Sis, Chickiemama and Chookies, it's very easy to step on or trip over these things, some stick pretty far up (maybe 8") above the ground. Maybe that's why they grow in or so near the water. PLG & Shirley, they must not grow in your areas. Glad you saw something new. They are beautiful in spring, fall, summer and winter all. I love these trees.

Very interesting. I'd be the first one to trip over them! Thanks Sis!!

chookies

...or step on one - could be a painful experience!!

chickiemama

Don't trip over 'em.

This is new for me too. And thanks for the link to the whole tree. What a great tree!

B & P, here's an earlier puzzle that's a picture of the whole tree. The tree is beautiful, with a sort of fern like quality of limbs. Glad you learned something!
