End of Year Favorites Part 2 (of 5): Buds and Emerging Leaves

Day two (of five) of some of my favorite photographic memories of the venerable plants of the Arnold Arboretum in 2015, with a focus on bud break and emerging leaves.

Juglans regia, English walnut, breaking bud in late April (692-52*B)

Liriodendron tuliperifera x chinensis, hybrid tulip tree, breaking bud in April (147-2000*A)

Platanus occidentalis, American sycamore, densely pubescent young leaf with glandular tips in July (1236-79*A)
