New Oak Leaves

I passed these on one of our wild back paths and thought they were pretty.  

Everything this year was zooming ahead by a month, then we had a hard freeze and a lot of the trees got stopped in their tracks.    The oaks and low lying locusts especially got hit.   They just started over again.    The new leaves are beautiful and contrast nicely with the fully developed leaves of the maples, ets.  

And our locust tree is just blooming now....


  1. I had a locust tree volunteer right in front of my front door... it was gorgeous,save for the thorns. And it only bloomed once... but the smell was heavenly! And then a storm came...the rest is kindling...

  2. Gorgeous! I don't think I've ever noticed red on our young oak leaves before.
