About Today’s Photo:
We have what might be one of the only Amur cork trees in Vermont in our side yard. We got it decades ago from a local nurseryman (thanks Paul!) and it’s grown to over 40′ tall. Most falls, a hard freeze will cause its leaves to drop before they change color, but this year, it’s putting on a great show glowing bright yellow against the incoming stick season.
