Cumulus Buildup Above Dead Live Oak; cumulus likely back-building or flanking to a cumulonimbus behind it.

The Live Oak died from someone alerting the landscape around it to appropriate dirt for their home site, critically damaging its root system.  Was such a nice tree.

-These clouds did not result in severe weather.  The lack of crispness in the bubbling cumulus usually indicate not too aggressive updrafts.  In this case we are under high pressure influence with some warmth in the upper atmosphere, that acts to suppress cloud growth in many instances. Last photo is dramatized by me.
