I know I’ve posted a photo of this neighborhood White Oak before before, but it’s interesting in all seasons.  I really love the way it looks when it’s wet with rain… the bark turns black in places.  With the wind and rain of the last cople of days, we’ve had many leaves blown from this tree into our yard…oh joy!  We still have quite a ways to go before the final leaf falls though, as it always seems to be the last tree on the street to hold onto it’s leaves.   afs
