I blogged about this as one of my first blog posts almost a year ago.
Have you guys noticed the Pine Tree Crosses starting to form?
For those that weren’t with us last year……
In the spring, around Easter, pine trees shoot up a ‘sprout’ at the end of each branch
that turns into a cross each year.
We were outside yesterday and I noticed that the pine trees
in our neighborhood had begun their sprouts. Right now it is
just the one shoot….but within the next few weeks
crossbars will appear.
Isn’t that neat…even the pine trees know that it’s Easter?
We’ve been watching this happen ever since our children
were very small….and to this day beginning in March
they are always looking out the windows of the car
as we ride down the road….
Searching for the Pine Tree Crosses.
So far there hasn’t been a pine tree in which we haven’t been able
to find them….the picture above is a large-leaf/long-leaf pine;
but they also appear on the smaller white pines and other pine trees.
Head on out and check out your pine trees…..
let me know what you find!
