New Leaves

 Oaks and hickories do not drop their leaves in the Fall like most other tree species. They hang onto them through the winter into the Spring.

I found this tree among several young hickories in our yard on the trail to the post box all holding onto last year’s leaves.  Note the new leaves among last year’s.
