Live Oak leaves against the dark pink of Loropetalum
Live Oak Trees are shedding old leaves. Unlike deciduous oaks that shed their leaves in fall, Live Oaks lose their leaves as new leaves grow in late winter. Old leaves here are gold colored as they are pushed off by new growth.

A closer look
Julia Child floribunda rose blooming ahead of season,
happy in emerging sunshine with a raindrop still on her petal.
I think the early blossom is the result of protection from the
Golden Euonymous on the north side of the rose.
Camellia seedling with golden stamens, one of
six seedlings in the garden. All but one have
bloomed. That one has fat buds.
New seedlings have sprouted in the greenhouse.
View out my carport door: More golden stamens on Camellias.
Blooms in the greenhouse are on Dotty Plants Journal blog.
Blooms of Hyacinths, Persian Shield, Begonias, Kalanchoe, Pineapple Sage and Persian Shield are there.
