As mentioned before, we have purchased property. 6.5 acres of wildness!!! We have been able to tame it a bit and it is coming along nicely, but we still have a long way to go. That being said, the kids and I went on a bit of an adventure today....we went to a tree identification class at a local nature park!!! I was hoping it would be helpful in identifying some of the chaos around here. It did help! I now know that I have Live Oak, White Oak and Magnolia trees. Also, that the orange fungus that was growing on my Pine trees was not devastating, just scarring.
Really, I already knew about the trees....What I needed help with was the other bazillion (well, it does seem like a bazillion!!) trees and shrubs that are here!!!! I did get some new info and I am very thankful!!! One of the ladies there told me to take a sampling of the tree/shrub in question to the local County Extension office and they can help me!!! =)
I did have an awesome time with my kiddos and it was the perfect day to be outside!!!
