As Stubborn as an Oak

 
If "stubborn as an oak" isn't a saying, it should be. The oak trees just refuse to drop their leaves until way after all the other trees have given up for the winter.

I just liked this one on the way to bell choir practice.

In other news: I worked on books all day long except for a little more house cleaning, and a few errands on the way to bell choir.

In our Connecticut home, we had an oak in the front. It held its leaves until spring. Only when new buds began to pop did the old leaves drop. That was one stubborn oak tree.
