Obligatory And Slightly Surly Foliage Report: Monday, May 18

FR 2015 (5-18-1435)The tree is done. It’s fully foliaged. It’s blooming bloomed. There’s no need for more tree pics. As commentator MB says sarcastically, “Wow, look, the leaves are coming out!” Good eye, MB!

Nevertheless, we are not done here. I have to think of the future and as long as Prairie Dog is in this office we’re going to need a full record of the May leaf situation every goddamn year so we can do comparisons to last year or two years ago or 2012 or even 2011. Therefore, I’m going to take pictures of the stupid tree every day in May and we’re all going to goddamn LIKE it.

Have another pic after the jump–I promise it is leaferrific.

  1. Good science requires anality; anyone can tell you that. Meanwhile, the newly hatched goslings in Wascana Park should distract anyone bored with leaves. If you want to feed them, take split peas or unsalted sunflower seeds (shelled), not bread.

  2. Is stating the obvious also sarcasm? Well I’ll be a snake in the leaves.

    Good note Barb. I did hear the city of Saskatoon has plans to have barley available in parks near where many geese are. People can use the barley to feed them to dissuade people from feeding geese bread. Too much bread gives the geese unwanted growth side effects.

  3. I thought that Wascana Park had similar plans, but have heard nothing for several weeks.
