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)

Camptotheca acuminata backlit by the sun rising over the Anacostia
Today the sun rose at 6:51 and I took this picture at 6:58. Back in the good old days of mid-June it rose at 5:42.giving me time to walk around the garden before I left for work. We're losing 2.5 minutes of sunlight per day. That's frightening. Day is longer than night but that'll only last another week. We're plummeting towards the Solstice.
