Q is for Quakies

Q is for Quaking Aspen [Populus tremuloides] a deciduous tree that grows in cooler, higher elevations including my home state of Idaho. The tree shown above grows on the campus of my Alma mater, Idaho State University in Pocatello (elevation 4464 ft). Locally known as 'Quakies,' they have white bark and heart shaped leaves that 'quake' in the breeze. I think that's why I am so smitten by the many stands of white birch in Minnesota--they remind me so much of the stately and quaint Quaking Aspen.
Visit ABC Wednesday for more Q words & photos from just about everywhere.
Character is like a tree and reputation like a shadow.
The shadow is what we think of it;
the tree is the real thing.

Beautiful trees, beautiful photos. Informative too. Nice to find a different type of Q.

I love the aspen - whispers in the breeze like sage old souls. There's a big stand of them not so far from here and it's an absolute delight to site quietly while they loose their lore into the summer air.

Beautiful shots, lovely trees and intersting information! Doesn't get any better than that! Thanks for stopping by my blog and for your comment. Always appreciated!

What a good Q...and I love the Aspens...in the fall they seem to shimmer with gold...

Reader Wil said...

Hi Noni! A very good Q word. We have that same tree in the Netherlands. It rustles when there is a soft breeze. Thanks for your visit.

RuneE said...

You have taught me a new word and about a "new" tree - thank you :-)

Rose said...

An excellent choice for Q! I've only seen these trees in books and magazines; they're beautiful. And I do like your Wordless Wednesday photo. As a new puppy owner myself, I'm just thinking that the President probably doesn't have to clean up after the dog himself:)

I meаn "Q is for Quakies" iѕ a little vanіllа.
You might looκ at Yаhοo's home page and watch how they create post headlines to get people to open the links. You might add a related video or a related picture or two to get people excited about what you'vе ωrіtten.
Just my ορіnіon, it might make yοur poѕtѕ a little lіvelier.
