Advice from Friends

I'd never heard of a yellowwood tree, but our little volunteer group was ordering seedlings to give away for Arbor Day, and John was advocating we get a few. That was many many years ago, and for the past couple years, I was happy that my yellowwood tree had a few flower clusters.
This spring it was stunning. The delicate airy clusters were beautiful in bud and more wonderful when the flowers opened, but the day the sun came out after a rain, the flowers and leaves glowed. Thanks, John. It was good advice!

They are beautiful trees! The first one that I ever had the pleasure of seeing was in your yard... and it was so neat to see the gigantic ones at the Arboretum! I do wonder how old that one is...
