One HUGE Leaf!

How big do you think this leaf is? It’s hard to tell! When I saw it my eyes just about popped out of my head.

My foot is size 7.5 and it’s still huger than that. Nothing like a Northern Red Oak (Quercus rubrus) leaf.

And yes, I had a professor who hated it that I initial capitalize tree names, but I can’t help it. Here’s not here to mark me off now!

And yes, my pants are stupid with them rolled up.  I hate it when I order pants in my length and they send the wrong ones.  I’m too cheap to pay the postage to send them back so I wear them in the woods.  Or, I could get the sewing machine buzzing.  But that would require time away from being outside.  Or from making a quilt.

    I just sent you a shot of one I think is the same. Good idea to use your foot to measure. I couldn’t hold my hand out far enough to measure against my hand.

    It may be white swamp oak. That is the closest thing I could find. What do you think?
