My Weekend and the Sassafrass

I have my weekend (Tuesday and Wednesday) planned so full I don’t know if I’ll be able to accomplish it all. The weather will actually be warm and sunny and my garden calls. Yippee!

The feature Frame Me! all-occasion greeting card for the week is this interesting Sassafrass leaf.1363 I love the mitten shape of Sassafrass leaves anyway but this unusually nibbled upon one is just so fun!

In one house where we lived there was a rogue Sassafrass tree that would not go away. It was in a bad spot and we cut it down. It came back up. Cut it down. Grew. This went on for some time. An added problem were the suckers that grew up from the roots, so in addition to the trunk of the tree, there were frequently little saplings we had to deal with as well.

I now have a better appreciation for the Sassafrass tree. After all, there is Sassafrass tea and the beautiful leaves it provides.
