Once you master the Tree Pose in yoga, go one step further in your treeness. Do the pose with a set of gold oak leaf earrings. Each is hand cast in the U.S. and authentic right down to the number of lobes that designer Janet Mavec spied on Quercus rubra, the red oak, at historic Greenwood Garden in New Jersey. The red oak leaf earrings represent you conquering the pose and loving all things tree.
You could put these on with those Electric Yoga pants and a green wicking tank top. But better yet, wear these for a walk in the park. The trees will love you for it.
Trees gain fame, too, like the 1,000-year-old Major Oak in England's Sherwood Forest. This tree with a hollowed-out trunk once hid Robin Hood, it is believed.
The leaves of Quercus rubra turn red in the fall and carpet the ground. Not all oak trees shed leaves in the fall.
