The one thing that we keep pulling out of the gardens around this house are these little oak trees. The squirrels take the acorns each fall and hide them all over the place, and sometimes under the leaves in the garden. In the spring they have started to sprout and we start over again, pulling the saplings out.
This theme ‘Foreshadow’ held me back a little because I wanted something a little different. Then I remembered taking this picture of the little tree with the acorn shell still attached. and Voila…
This is part of how that little sapling will turn out to be in about 15 years.
The birds, squirrels and sometimes raccoons, will have a safe place to climb or land on and maybe even have a nest.
The Oak tree has a flower of sorts …..
In the fall, the leaves gives us a beautiful array of colours.
And eventually when winter comes, the remainder of fallen leaves can be found sitting in the snow..
So, we replanted our little sapling in an open field out front with the hope that it will start a new generation of trees. .Thanks for visiting….
