  • These February days outside are full of movement, a visual dance of changes. Have you noticed the amount of dry leaves falling from live, laurel and other evergreen oaks? Buds on these trees begin the unfolding of new fresh leaves to replace the old fallen ones. The pine trees release pollen that moves through the air, resting in yellow powder on receiving surfaces. Only the turkey oak leaves, jagged-edged and brown, remain on their branches longer into spring. The movement of wind causes these dry leaves to rustle insistently.
