I travelled to Auburn this weekend to help my daughter move into her new apartment.  We took a break and drove downtown.  I wanted to take a photo of Toomer's Corner and the oak trees that are rolled with toilet paper after every winning football game.  They were poisoned several months ago by a crazy U. of Alabama fan.  So far, they are still standing.  The oak tree on Magnolia was looking a little yellow to me and the one on College has lost a lot of leaves but they both had new leaves.  The specialists say now that they just may survive.

These signs were posted in front of the trees.

I was surprised to see so many people there doing the same thing I was.......taking pictures of the oak trees.  I thought it may be the last time that I'd see them.  You can see from this angle that they have lost several branches.

The roots are massive.  It would be such a shame if they died.
