The Spruce Cone:
Valentines to Her Children

spruce-conval.jpg (715223 bytes)

It might seem strange to refer to a spruce tree sending valentine cards or messages to her children, but it really isn't when we take a closer look.   The seeds and pollen of the spruce are contained within the cones, and when the cones open, the seeds are dispersed to begin new spruce trees.  The spruce's valentine message for each of her children (seeds) are written on the underside of each scale or bract in the form of our traditional valentine heart.  Another of God's wonders to behold!
