From Today’s Walk

It was a breezy walk today, but I was happy to finally get a six mile day in. I’m not sure why, but walking during Covid Times, even when I really don’t have to worry about running into people, causes me to walk fewer miles most of the time. It’s as if I feel the urge to get back to the safety of my house.

In any case, I walked, and I took only photos of this magnolia flower. It was just too darn windy! But here … have something from today’s walk:

Magnolia Flower & Leaves, 6.8.20

Amazing Color

I don’t know if readers remember, but a few weeks back I posted an image of a tree with great leaf color. Since then I’ve walked past that tree again. And the change between April 19 (first two photos) and 27 is pretty amazing. Just today someoneĀ in a plant ID group asked for the ID of this tree, so now I know it is the Fagus sylvatica, also called the European beech or tri-color beech. I call it astounding beech.
