Amygdalus.

The almond

XLIII.

Cur properans foliis praemittis amygdale flores?
Odi pupillos praecocis ingenii.[1]

Almond tree, why are you in such a hurry to put out flowers before your leaves? I hate precocious pupils.

Notes:

1. áSee Quintilian (Fabius Quintilianus), Institutio oratoria, 1.3.3: “the precocious type of intellect never easily comes to fruition”.

    Picea.

    The spruce tree

    At picea emittat nullos qu˛d stirpe stolones:
    Illius est index, qui sine prole perit.

    But the spruce, because it sends up no shoots from its stock, is a symbol of the man who dies without progeny.
