Edisto Mystery Tree

Edisto Island, SC

I am so darned nice when everything is going my way it's almost pathetic. Sadly today isn't one of those days. Grrrr. I am spitting fire and shooting lightening from my eyes. Y'all stay clear.

Meanwhile, I may be mean as a snake, but here is a sweet picture of the Mystery Tree on Edisto Island to reassure you that my irritation does not extend to my blog family. My blogimy?

I haven't tracked down any explanation for it but it is always decorated and the festivities change according to the season. I took this shot some time ago but it is decorated in a similar beachy fashion right now. Someone takes the trouble to go out in the marsh, take down the old stuff and put up fresh and colorful items. Ya gotta love that. It's almost enough to put me in a good mood.

Does anyone know the rest of the story?


  1. As one nice person to another, I can't imagine you spitting fire and shooting lightning.

  2. Very cool. I have never heard of this tree before!

    Hope today is a better day for you!

  3. Sadly there is one person who can picture it too clearly. I have one more issue to deal with this afternoon before I revert to my default. Grrrr.

  4. Curious minds want to know!

  6. Even nice people like you deserve to bitch and moan, Japee.... do it like you're paying for it!

  7. I love the mysterious and ever-changing tree but now everyone wants to know what you'll post after all the spitting and shooting. We're holding our breathe.

  8. Frank, here is the problem. I have to give a talk on blogging to a group tomorrow and will need to pull up my blog. I don't want to scare them. :)

    Marcheline - Thank you. It doesn't happen often.

    Brittany - Thanks. Good luck.

    B Squared - Tenants and co-workers. Grrrr. I think I took care of things.

  9. What a great tree! The world needs more mystery, don't you think? AS long as you smile while shooting fire, they will never know what hit them1 ;)

  10. It's a purely selfish thing. The spirited sprites and the tree smile when its time to dress up again. It's, also, important to be undressed up sometime--particularly when you're taking time off~ /they do it for themselves but their actions do make many others happy. simple.

  11. Lovely. The best possible answer.

  12. Hmmm, that was interesting. Looks like somethings will always remain mystery.

    I myself has been trying to solve the mystery of the legend that forces you to have "earn it before

    having it", for a wile now. Could not understand much though.

    Let me know in case you get to understand the mystery of the Old Hound and the Legend

    By the way, good writing style. I'd love to read more on similar topics

  13. Oh my I have just remembered by this pic I have been to your blog before!

    Man, I followed that the dark truth link, and was completely in the story. Damn exciting. The latest post talks about a friend of him who's gone missing . Somewhere on his way to Leh, India. And the guy is asking for help find it. Soundss like an online game . This looks interesting. M already hooked on.

    Hey, btw, nice post you have there - keep rocking - ;)
