Here's Oakley's mother, and also a top view of Oakley.
I'd like to introduce you to my friend, Oakley :) A few years ago (I wish I could remember exactly which year), I planted an acorn in this pot, and wonder of wonders, it sprouted. Each year it has grown, but this year the leaves are as big as the ones on its mother tree! The original red oak tree was given to me by a student who I worked with in her final two years of high school...she said I was to plant it so I'd always remember her and our time together! The really endearing thing about the offspring, is that each autumn, just like the big trees, the leaves turn a beautiful red shade and then fall off, and all that is left is a little twig trunk! I suppose that is to be expected, but it still is amazing to me. The mosaic stone that the pot sits on was made for me by a friend's little girl who knew I liked the sea. She used blue glass for the water, and orange and yellow for the sun. Very special gifts from the heart :)
