I love spring! And I can't wait for things to start to get green around here!

I'm hosting a caption contest today that will give you perspective on the profile picture you commented about;))

Nature is so fascinating in its diversity. Great picture.

Nice verse, it will be wonderful when there are no divisions, and we all stand in awe at His feet...

What kind of plant are these on??? It's pretty.

Originally, I had thought that this particular tree was a Water Oak. They are native in Arkansas. I had never noticed the little chains of flowers on the leaves as they budded before... nor the fuzzy reddish-green baby leaves. I was amazed when I got up close to them that they were so soft and pretty. I just had to take a picture. After studying the tree some, I decided that I wanted to know what type of oak it was (oaks have acorns, so I knew already that it was in the oak family). There is such a long list of oaks. After careful study, however, I am certain that this is a Blackjack Oak.

It looks pretty similar to the Water Oak, except for the tips of the leaves.

Here's a great link to help you Identify Trees in your yard.

Thanks for all of your sweet comments. I loved this photo - and wasn't sure everyone else would. ;) Glad you like it. Today was supposed to be the first day of Spring... and I had no idea when I posted the photo. It was a nice surprise when I looked at my calendar.

Happy Spring, y'all. :)

It's a sign of spring, but it looks like it could hurt you. Let's just say...I wouldn't touch it and I wouldn't want it in my yard. Kind of scary looking. Have a great WW!
