Pine Tree Crosses….Easter is Coming!

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!

Happy Wednesday~

  1. That’s so cool. I have noticed the new growth each year but I’ve never looked that closely. It surprises me because I’m always taking pictures of buds and blooms but never pine tree crosses! Thanks for the tip. 🙂 Nice to “meet” you.

Love to hear from you guys.......
