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.
In its own way, frost may be one of the most beautiful things to happen in your garden all year . . . Don’t miss it. Like all true beauty, it is fleeting. It will grace your garden for but a short while this morning. . . . For this moment, embrace frost as the beautiful gift that it is.
