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)
