The Leaves in the Trees

These leaves intrigue me. I came upon them on Library Avenue, a few trees in a row, all with leaves like this unfurling. Unfortunately, I am by no means any good with tree identification, and I am mystified as to what they are. Any idea?

The Cherry Blossoms

D.C. may be famous for its Cherry Blossom Festival, but why travel and battle the crowds when we have some beautiful trees right here in the village?

The tree from which this particular blossom was photographed can be found on the corner of Mill Road and Main Street, near the gazebo. There are several trees next to a gorgeous garden, which bears a sign stating that it (the garden) was planted and maintained by the Westhampton Garden Club.

The Path in the Woods

with one comment

My favorite month on Long Island is May. Every year it seems to pour and pour and pour at the end of April, only to leave the bark wet and the trees bursting with green when May comes.

This was my first and only visit to the Terrell River County Park — I had hoped it edged closer than it did to the spot in the river where I saw 11 egrets feeding once — but I was astounded by how large it was compared to how it looks. The trail eventually leads to a beautiful little beach.

The Chipmunk in the Trees

This guy has learned to watch for people just like the birds have. He followed us along the trail, hoping we would drop something good to eat.

The Forest for the Trees

This is one of my favorite places on the trail of the Quogue Wildlife. It’s simply one of those magical places where the light always seems to shine through the trees just right, no matter the season.
