Continuing Tree Study...Hickory

We almost waited too late to study the Hickory tree in the pasture.  The few leaves that were left were a beautiful golden yellow color.  We collected a leaf and hickory nut to draw in our nature notebooks.  The boys examined the bark and also decided to see how big around the tree was.

Hickory Tree branches against a beautiful blue sky.  There were a few leaves left.
Here are the boys measuring the tree with a tree hug:-)

Studying and loving a tree can be so much fun, can't it? It would be great if you studied this tree for a whole year, in every season!
