Pine Appreciation

How many resort names or locations have you come across that include a description of the hardy old pine tree? Some are clichéd - overused and common. We've probably all heard of Knotty Pines. Or of Whispering, Hidden, or Windy Pines. They can also be called Lost, Lonely or Towering. Sometimes, just Twin Pines. But have you ever come across ...

Cross-hatched Pines?



Spiky Pines,                      or             Spiraled Pines  



Glistening Pines or Sunny Pines?



And then there's the ominous, Buried Pines ...
or Porcu - Pine?

We joke that "whispering pines" means it's VERY windy there, and should be avoided! Heehee!

Euphemisms, all 😊

Love this post. Wish I could attach a picture I took of a majestic pine.

Thanks Dennis. Pity we can't see your pic

Like all the native words for "snow," Mainers have many descriptive "pine" cliches, I guess. Here in San Diego we have Torrey Pines. Thinking about childhood climbing, I think "sticky pines." The sap that lingers on your hands and hair and clothing, ugh! But so much fun to climb the giants.

Though the sap is sticky, I must say I love the scent - maybe "scented pines"?
