This looks far more like a fall day blog post than a January blog post! At least for Nebraska that is.
This is a big old cottonwood on our place. I know so many don't like cottonwoods because the branches crack off so easily. But, those, people don't watch the leaves dance from their windows. Or listen to the cottonwood leaves rustle in the wind.
And look at the beauty from a fallen branch of a cottonwood.
It's frozen to the ground right now but when it thaws I believe I will bring it in although it's big. It has another branch scar like this on the other side. I found some smaller ones yesterday that weren't frozen to the ground and they are drying on my back step right now.
I suppose there is a word for this formation. Anyone know?
And, always, I scrounge for leaf skeletons. Yesterday, did not disappoint.
I hope you had a nice weekend!
