THANK YOU @mbjphoto ! • Although most of the #trees at the arboretum have lost their leaves, oaks and beeches hold on to theirs, which is called, #marcescence . They may retain the dead leaves to protect their buds from being eaten, or to serve as spring compost. Other theorists propose that these trees use marcescence to attract winter photographers on #snowy days! 🤔 • • #gardenchat #letsroamohio #ohioexplored #inmygarden #plantlife #216 #thisiscle #cle #discoverohio #gardenlife #inspiredbyohio #onlyinohio #universitycircle #igersmidwest #gardenphotography
