One of the things I also love about Cape Cod are the trees. There are so many varieties of pines, Eastern White Pine, Norway Spruce, Colorado Blue Spruce, and of course the scrub pine. Indigenous, as most of the trees that live here are not, to the region, the hearty scrub pine endure the wild swings in temperatures, bend with the wicked winds that blow from every direction seemingly all day long and growing where many trees cannot, in the porous, sandy soil that is Cape Cod–a big sand bar out in the ocean. This is one of my scrub pines in my front yard, looking up at them on a cold February azure sky kind of day, gives you a great feeling of serenity–give it a try sometime. Peace M
