Pin Oak Leaves

pin-oak-leaves

The Pin Oak is a tree indigenous to the parts of the US east of California – which means everywhere is east!  These are trees familiar to my childhood in the midwest and along the eastern seaboard, and I missed them forever once we moved to California.  There are oak trees in California, but they are adapted to a different climate, with much smaller leaves which don’t turn orange before falling.  Also, they are green year round, which is a blessing of color in a beige winter landscape.  And, they are as wonderful as the Pin Oak.  Yay, trees!
