Our northern woods seem a bit boring in comparison to yours- we are extremely thick with white pine, spruce and hemlock; when I see any of the more showy/attractive hardwoods such as locust around here they appear to have been planted by human hands within the last century. I have never seen a pink one! Beautiful!~gretchen
Wow, such differences. Lots of green year round, eh? Around here it's mostly white pine for the conifers and I'd estimate that as 25% of total tree species.Reading your comment before heading out on today's adventure, I had locusts on my mind. I noticed trees of all sizes, from little bushes my height to great monsters that remind me of Treebeard from the Lord of the Rings movie. The locusts, for reasons that elude me, seem more likely to bunch up.
