Beautiful Morning Walk on Quiet Leelanau Road


  1. I'm thinking the baby pine cones are on a
    white pine? We have a number of 60 ft blue
    spruce across the way which litter our yard
    with cones every time there is a strong wind.
    [but I've never investigated their appearance
    as cone youngsters]

  2. BB, I didn't think to count the needles in a cluster (should be 5 for white pine), but the book I'm looking at now--strangely, it's TREES OF PENNSYLVANIA, but the drawings and photographs are very good--tells me that we're probably looking here at a "branch with staminate flowers."

  3. Lovely. So nice Sara gets to roam with you!
