Kirby Elm Trees along the Boardwalk

Kirby Elm Trees along the Boardwalk: These are not leaves floating in the puddles from the recent rains. Maybe you saw yesterday’s post about Kirby Elms Before and After, which showed the flowers and then the mature fruit called a samara, which is a winged seed. The wings help give the samara some lift as strong winds blow it off the tree and at least a few feet away from the parent Elm. I think it working great with the strong storms we are having this week! #DoctorBot #LakeKirby
