If you see a lot of white-barked large trees off in the distance, you can bet that there is a river or creek (or body of water) nearby!
The root beer tree!
Oaks (white and red)
So many oaks, so little time.
I love this tree because my honey bees love it.
Why is it called a Redbud when it's flowers are either pink or purple?
My family told me they are called dogwoods because their flowers smell like wet dogs. In any case they are still one of my favorite Virginia trees!
Just the thing to break up the gray and brown winter forest, and give you a little does of flowery sunshine!
If you can't get any lemons because of weather or supply chain issues, maybe just get out to the edge of some woods and harvest yourself a little sumac.
You're WILD man, WILD.
Why can't you be a blueberry? Why????? There are so many of these in the woods.... but they really don't taste good.... whyyyyyy.
