Easter Pines

Now that daylight savings has come, Easter will be here before we know it. I received an email the other day that claimed the Pine trees know when it is time for Easter.

This email explains that " The Pine trees start their new growth in the weeks before Easter-- if you look at the tops of the trees two weeks before Easter, you will see yellow shoots. As the days get closer to Easter Sunday, the tallest shoot will branch off and form a cross. By the time Easter Sunday comes around, you will see that most of the Pine trees will have small yellow crosses on all of the tallest shoots."

I have no idea if this is true everywhere especially because of all the unusual weather this year.

But I am definitely going to keep my eyes pealed for it in the upcoming weeks.
