I thought the oak trees in my yard were coniferous. Mistakenly I thought all oak trees were coniferous. As it turns out, most oak trees are deciduous and they lose their leaves. The unfortunate thing about my oaks is not only do they lose their leaves but they also just turn brown and fall off, they do not turn pretty colors then fall off...boo!
Ugly, currently they are just ugly as far as trees go, sprawling brown and lifeless. Those leaves that were pretty and green are now brown and ugly all over my yard...boo again! Don't get me wrong, I still love my house in the country, my yard and my trees...it just helps me look that much more forward to spring. It's a ways away. However, in Texas, we get lots of days that feel like spring, but are in the dead of winter. Mid 70s, no wind, sunny, just perfect days to do whatever in.
I decided not to bring my plants in this year. I'm hopeful the days that are below freezing will be only freezing for a few hours then heat right back up. So far so good. They are just such a mess of dried leaves falling off to clean up all winter long. We'll see how it goes. So far so good.
No photos, just take my word...brown (two words) ugly!
The Lord God made all kinds of trees grow out of the ground—trees that were pleasing to the eye and good for food.
