Just learned via A Gardener’s Notebook of this online tree identification applet. It basically works like a botanical key, so you need a twig with leaves right in front of you to really take advantage of it. On the other hand, you don’t have to keep your fingers marking three different spots in a field guide to figure out what you’ve got. If you like trees, you’ll want to stop by in any event.
If winter is slumber and spring is birth, and summer is life, then autumn rounds out to be reflection. It’s a time of year when the leaves are down and the harvest is in and the perennials are gone. Mother Earth just closed up the drapes on another year and it’s time to reflect on what’s come before.
