Learning to identify trees takes patience. The ground under this intricately barked tree in our backyard is covered with hickory nuts. If I could see the leaves it would help, but this is a very tall tree and the crown is obscured by the shorter trees. I'll have to wait until the leaves fall to determine if it is a bitternut or pignut.
Meanwhile, a bright and cheery gazania from the garden. Patience. Find the beauty in the moment. 💚Peace
