Northern Red Oak Quercus rubra
Earlier this growing season, while Mark was weeding our potato patch he discovered several oak seedlings ~ thanks (we think) to the work of a very industrious blue jay last fall. When Mark pulled this one up, it came up acorn, tap root, leaves, and all, and brought it in for me to see. I decided that I had to document this natural event that spanned the seasons.
