There are still a few days left in the month, but I think this will be the last tree for me in the August challenge. I’ve been reminded that it’s time to come up with a new theme, and I’m a pretty poor multitasker. One thing at a time, that’s my motto.
Today’s tree, a splendid American Elm, is the crowning centerpiece of Overlook Park. I love this tree, in any season. It’s impressive in full leaf like it is here, but it is just as beautiful in midwinter when it’s only a skeleton.
There’s more to Overlook Park than just this Elm though. Nearly as impressive is its pair of distantly embracing black walnuts. To see them though, you’ll have to check out my daring quest to explore Going Street end to end.
