Here it is in flowery close-up.
Here it is in green glory.
Here it is in autumn amber.
Here it is in spring bud.
(It is there even during one of my obsessive searches for my arch nemesis The Fisher while I take action shots of my own finger, peer out of windows....)
Here it is as silent sentinel.
What kind of tree is this wonderful tree? I kept wondering. Then one day, I was doing something in the bathroom and happened to read the shower curtain.
It's a Tulip Tree!
