Two Horsechestnut trees

Black Poplar Trees?

Closer look at the bark

Interesting how smoother bark grades into coarse bark toward the base

Black Walnut Trees

Silver Maple

Banner year for maple seeds this spring, millions, if not billions, of them all over town

They fly down in a spinning motion and have earned the name ‘helicopters’

The seeds are edible!

Norway Maple

Tulip Tree

Very much enjoy all the entries you all have provided -- great to see the everyday cycling venues. Being in eastern Illinois, scenery certainly isn't our forte, but oh well, the roads are normally quiet. Look forward to more and more entries from all of you, I do have a few over on BL -- in Bill's Day Rides, and one journal.

    Now stop that! We have a great horse chestnut out in front of our latest apartment in Portland, and was about to post it. Now I’ll have to keep looking.
