I am sure mostly everyone here has seen the great classical movie, "Wizard Of Oz". Now in one scene Dorothy and the rest encounter the Apple Trees in the forest. Now I've loved that scene always. As I was in a local park Thursday I ran across this tree. Now tell me, doesn't it look somwewhat like those apple trees that threw apples at them all in the woods? The arms are outstretched and the nose is very prominent on this tree as well. This is so cool looking I think. I loved this and thought I have to share this here. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

I love finding things like this tree. How I thought about the movie is beyond me but here is the discussion and photo today. I saw this tree and thought it needed a "tree hugger". HAHAHAHA! But after seeing it on the monitor I thought about the Wizard of Oz. Thanks also. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

You must be a real "Wizrd of Oz" fan to pick that tree out. Yes it is very similar to that tree. When we were growing up we watched the "Wizard of Oz" on TV once a year. It was a tradition. I can't tell you how many times I have seen that movie, more than I care to count. Just bringing up the name of the movie brings up many delightful memories! Thanks for sharing.

Hi Grandpa Bob! Wow, I see what you mean, that is definitley a doppleganger or whatever the word is! Definitely spookie, which is how those trees were, especially when you were a child, I remember being scared by them when I first saw Wizard of Oz, although they weren't as scary as the Wicked Witch of The North, enough to give kiddies nightmares for weeks! I love the munchkins! And I am amazed that so many people use the term munchkin to their loved ones! We have a lot to be thankful for to that brilliant film Wizard Of Oz! Thanks for sharing, I'll try not to have nightmares now!

Wow what a great tree to find and yes it does remind me of the trees in the wizard of oz. I love that movie also. i remember looking forward to seeing it every year around Thanksgiving time when I was a kid. We didn't get a lot of channels back then but it would come on one of them. What a great memory you have brought up. Thanks!

Here in Minnesota it is seldom shown on Thanksgiving day. That was always a family tradition as well. Now it is on a few times a year. Judy Garland was from Brainard Minnesota. I think that is the city. A couple hundred miles from me only. They have a festival each year honoring her. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

I love apple trees. especially when they have borne fruit and scatter them all over the floor. i was in a small english town once and there was one of these apple trees and i picked up some fruit and wanted to eat them but someone stopped me saying that it was best to eat fruit that was picked off a tree rather than on the ground since it might have started rotting already. it looked really nice though. in the end i just kept it as a momento for a few days. thanks for this post, it really reminded me of some happy times in connection with the apple tree!

Now Grandpa Bob, if you had taken an apple off that tree and he slapped your hand like in the movie I know you would have taken off like a bat out of hell. Hahahahaha!

Yes, I can almost see a cranky face emerging from that trunk! I liked that scene, too. Loved the whole movie! Also loved the book, "Wicked" about the true story of the wicked witch. You should read it if you haven't already.
