to NATURE FRIDAY hosted by da LLB Crew

… because the weather was very springish we walked through da botany to discover some more signs of spring…

…the trees are still nekked, probably because of da high temperatures (25°c/77F) even the staff dreamed about taking their clothes off…

…we saw some sausages in a tree….

….some willow catskins ….

…and da stirred egg bush …

….and a Nelly watered all that plants immediately…

…and last but not least we looked for some oak leaves to ask THE NATURARIAN for the correct name of our oaks here:

…. here is one..

…and here is another one…

…do you know the name of our oaks?

  1. Sorry we can’t help you beyond saying “it’s an oak”! Good though to see signs of spring in your neck of teh woods.
    Toodle pip!

  2. Guys! Looks like you had a great hike looking for signs of Spring. We think those oak leaves are from an English Oak/German Oak – we googled to find that much out. We have lots of oaks in our yard too with all kinds of leaves on them. I call them all TEDDY OAKS. hahaha

    Hugs, Teddy

  3. Spring is coming to your neck of the woods, boys! How exciting! We admit that we looked up your leaf and google says that it’s an English Oak leaf.

  4. Nice walkie talkies, Phenny and Nelly and I’m sure you find a name for that oaks too…like you did with the saucages…MOL 😀 Pawkisses for a Happy Weekend🐾😽💞

  5. My GBGV Life says:

    Our signs of spring are buried deep in snow, with more white stuff due to arrive again today. Enjoy your spring!

  6. #1 says she likes your “egg” name for Gorse!

    It looks like there will be quite a lot of rain in the next week.


  7. Yaaaas! I agreed with Teddy =-) That is an English / French / European or even pedunculate oak (A Wha? 8-|) Or in Latin Quercus Robur.
    I don’t have these by me. I do have a similar one, The Swamp White Oak (Quercus bicolor), which almost got me, however I had to remember you’re not right next door (wishes!!)
    Have a great weekend!!!

  8. OH, PS!
    Did you know the sausages (catkins) in the trees are some kind of Birch (Betula). Those ARE the ahem.. Male parts. Had you looked closer, there will be a girly part that points up, same tree/same area of sausage. Waaaaay smaller. Why is is in every other biological species, its the MALE that needs to be the pretty one? Gaaa!!

  9. Kismet says:

    You’re in deep trouble if those are poison oaks.

  10. lapaylor says:

    there are lots of oak species… I’m allergic to all of them! You’re having a lot warmer weather than we are right now…

  11. We’re pretty sure that your regular watering is what’s helping!!

  12. Brian Frum says:

    Such a nice walk and cool finds boys!

  13. I don’t know what the leaves are, but sometimes, I try to eat acorns. Mom says only donkeys and pigs are allowed to eat them. Lucky.

    Love and licks,

  14. Looks like a very fun Springish walk. Looks like Nelly takes watering duties seriously!

  15. Twinies what a fantastic walkie you and the peeps had. Sausages in trees and catskins?
    OH my!
    Happy Friday
    Hugs Cecilia

  16. It’s interesting to see you oak leaves. We have a White Oak and a Red Oak tree on our property and we could tell that those leaves were neither of those. They are similar to the white oak because they have rounded edges where as the Red Oak has pointed edges. Thanks for taking us on this fun hike around your neighborhood.

  17. So thoughtful of you both to help with the watering. We don’t have much of anything up or budding yet, but hopefully it won’t be too long as we’re definitely ready for spring!!


  18. It’s definitely an oak but beyond that, no clue. There are a lot of apps out there that may be able to figure it out. I found this link that may provide some clues or at least narrow down the choices.

  22. The OP Pack says:

    Pussy willows – a sure sign that Spring is near!!! We think they are English oak too, but why not just call them French oak? BOL

    Woos – Lightning, Misty, and Timber

  23. Bella, Roxy and says:

    We’re going to get down and dirty with Nature at the river this morning!!

  24. Jan K says:

    What a nice walk, on level ground that’s not white or slippery!! Lucky you!! 🙂

  25. Memories of Eric and Flynn says:

    Your oaks look the same as our English trees and there categorised name is Quercus. We have the catkins and pussy willows coming out on our trees.
    It is good of Nelly to water everything to make sure it grows.

  26. All our oaks are shedding leaves right now – they are water oaks with broad graceful spreading canopies. The new leaves will be out almost over night…we think they must be very shy (and proper) oak trees.
    We’re about there same temp here today – but the sea fog is rolling back in – it was only grey skies until now. But good enough for nature walks – mud? No problem; says Molly!
    The green green grass contrasts nicely with the red coat. It looks like Spring is actually coming!

  27. Marsha Gay says:

    You have sausage trees there? Look out, we’re coming!

  28. Idaho PugRanch says:

    some very interesting plants you have there! We are glad to see signs of spring

  29. M. K. Clinton says:

    Our yard is looking like spring which means weeds and clover! LOL!

  30. Deziz World says:

    Glad ya’ll had a good day in the sun. Big hugs

    Luv ya’

    Dezi and Raena

  31. The Swiss Cats says:

    It looks like spring is coming to you ! We can see the first signs of spring here, but we’re afraid that if winter comes back, it’s going to be bad for nature. Purrs
