Mike's Blog - Day 129

I never thought to get you a picture of the Scarlet Oak.

Here is a close-up.

This Hydrangea is planted close to the fence by the North American Arboretum, but this is the Oak-leaved Hydrangea, Hydrangea quercifolia. It sometimes has excellent red leaves in Autumn too. 

The oaks, “Quercus sp” are very diverse in their leaves, but of course that's only relevant to identify which species it is. All oaks bear acorns. That’s the common feature of this genus.

The bamboo shoot is looking good.
