One in Adelphi, Maryland, one in Wildwood, Florida, one at the US National Arboretum with a grandfatherly interest in many more around the DC area (unless noted, pictures are taken the day of post)

Aesculus and Phlox are lit by the morning sun on the road through Fern Valley
The developing leaves on the Aesculus have a peculiar droop and sheen that interact curiously with the morning sun. As the month passes I have to come in earlier and earlier to catch the sun low in the sky, but the light is wonderful so I'm going to keep on trying!
