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)

We dodged a bullet at the National Arboretum and fall rolls on
Sandy knocked down a few trees but that's all. The top picture is of "Legume Hill" and the smallish looking mounded tree to the right of center is a huge Osage orange. Everything's relative perspective and all. The bottom two pictures I took on the road in Fern Valley. The bright color in the middle is Oxydendrum arboreum, Sourwood.
