The Majestic Oaks

November 5th, 2018

We have a lot of red oak trees around our property. Our back field is surrounded by a row of lovely oak trees. This time of year, they turn a beautiful russeted amber. They’re not a flamboyant in their fall color as the maples, but they bring a lovely brightness to the darker days.

At the moment, I’m trying to soak up all this lovely color before all the leaves are gone and things are brown until the snow flies.

Do you have a favorite tree?
