Oak Leaf

The snow banks by the road slowly reveal items of nature that have been hidden for the past few months.

Oak Leaf In Snow

This oak leaf sinks daily into its little bed of snow until it will eventually reach the ground.

Tenacity

Oak trees wait forever to drop their leaves. These should have fluttered to the ground about 5 months ago but they are still hanging on.

There has to be a prize for such tenacity.

Oak leaves cling to their branches and don’t let go, even on a -30C morning!

Oak Leaves

Oak leaves are often left by the tree to hang for the winter and so do not fall to the forest floor where they would be protected from the weather by the snow blanket.

They will finally drop when Spring arrives with new growth.

Late

These leaves would be expected to be on the ground by now.

They provide some muted colour in the monochrome bush at this time of year.

When spring comes they will fall to be replaced by new greenery.
