From the nature table: The oak

This lovely sprig was brought down by the storms and gales, probably the tail end of Hurricane Florence two weeks back. This was only Category 4 hurricane in 2018.

The green in the leaves suggests the fall from grace was pre-mature. It remains a handsome find on the footpath.

Oak leaves are traditionally an important part of army regalia. For example symbolise rank in the United States Armed Forces. A gold oak leaf indicates Major; a silver oak leaf indicates Lt. Colonel. 

Atten-shun nature lovers!
