Bona Dea trees Update
Bona Dea has been sunny and warm for the last 2 days. Mosquitoes have been out in force. Ouch!!! Also the last couple of days I have been working on trees at the Park. The only birds I have seen much seem to be Blue Jays. Have seen the Green Heron on the nest by the spillway. Also some more of the yellow mushrooms I talked about in a previous post are popping up more. The Common or Eastern Pondhawk dragonflies are pretty numerous. But on Swinging Bridge Trail yesterday and on Old Shorty Trail today, I have been doing trees. It won't be long before the leaves start to change color and they will be harder to ID. So I have posted some photos here of the trees. The name of the trees and other details such as leaves and bark can be found by clicking on the Bona Dea Trees link in the right column. Hope you enjoy the trees at the park. The photos here shows the trees from top to bottom in this order: Yellowwood Tree, Sycamore Tree, Southern-poplar Tree, Northern Red Oak Tree, Common Juniper Tree-looks like a cedar, and Black Hickory Tree.
