Image result for pictures of red oaks blooming

Oak wears green taffeta Dancing in March's brisk breeze Sometimes shakes ill at ease Are oaks in Africa? Looking at Aquila? An affair with Altair gee ! Oak dances with redbud Changes partners with speed Forsythia now is freed When she see this wild dud A philanderer, stud. Tulip puts on brown tweed No need for spring's light clothes In the midst of her throes

SS, Sometimes I think: what if the trees could talk, what tales they would tell, especially an olive tree in the garden of Gethsemane when Jesus was there. Some olive trees there are over 2000 years old. Your visits are uplifting. Sara

Excellent imagery. That oak is no joke. So glad to see reference to Aquila and Altair, among my favorites in the sky (they dwell where eagles dare to tread). Best to you, Sara.

Eric, So nice that you dropped by. I agree the mighty oak is no joke. We have six in our yard and I think about their weight every time there is danger of a tornado coming our way. They offer such great shade for summer to help with the heat but could be such a danger if landing on our home and us in a heap. Sara
