Kickin' back, musing, observing, and gathering inspiration from the hills of East Tennessee.

Unidentified Plant or Shrub or Tree
What is this? Three leaves at each stem end. Leaves and berries covered in soft hair. The leaves are mildly saw-toothed. I believe it is a shrub or tree because the stem is woody. I can't find it in any of my wildflower or tree books or on the net. There are several of them growing around our property.
Rabbits cookin' coffee -- that's what the locals call it. But here in this little hollow in East Tennessee, when the hills surrender their misty hostage to reveal the stalwart cedars growing by the stream in our pasture, I know there is no place on earth I would rather be. The welcome mat is out! Come and sit on the porch and chat with me awhile!
