Oak Tree


At the forest’s edge
An acorn has taken fruit
Four leaves, an oak tree.

This fledgling oak tree found at Owens Conservation Park in Madison, Wisconsin in late October.

    You take amazing photos…what a wonderful ability to ‘see’ things that might otherwise be missed.

    Why’s everyone looking at this post? It’s a very striking photo, but hey there’s no snow. What gives? 🙂

    Gandalf ~ you really have got to let go of this snow fixation. Think golf or fishing… anything but snow! We have had enough snow.

    If you are going through snow withdrawal, go through the December through March Archives and enjoy all that white stuff. Brrr! But don’t expect any more snow shots on Seeded Earth until at least November.

    Now hush! 🙂
