Did you know the Eastern Red Cedar is Dioecious?
There are male plants, or trees; and female plants, or trees.
I didn't know this.
We have several of these trees in our back yard. Most people don't pay too much attention to them. In our part of the country they are wide-spread; a dime a dozen.
I find them interesting though and have been trying to learn more about them.
I'm still trying to decipher if the rust colored "flower" that appears in the spring, later becomes the blue "berry"?
Or, if the two different features determine if the tree is male or female.
It's a mystery to me and I'm bound and determined to find the answer.
One thing I did learn for certain is that the Eastern Red Cedar isn't a cedar at all.
It is in fact, a juniper.
As I get older, I find myself being fascinated by things I never would have thought twice about before.
Tuesday is my birthday.
So I am...pondering.
May your day be blessed.
And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.
...and God saw that it was good.
