Maybe this belongs in the mindless drivel section, but I believe it's also very helpful, especially for folks trying to identify what's in their forest. Buds can be the easiest sure fire way to identify a species. Here's a link to some of the characters a friend and I have made out of buds and bud scars. It's surprising how much they actually look like faces!

Also, lots of other interesting stuff on this blog for folks interested in woody plants.
