I Love My Backyard

Took a little walk out back today. I really love "my kingdom." The large orange tree has been featured before, several times, including Robert Tackles the Mystery Tree. It's still a mystery, but always beautiful.

I always feel fortunate to have such layers of colors just a short walk from my door.

Some single trees really stand out.

And the railroad tracks offer their own beauty at dusk.

And just for a giggle, one little flower decided to bloom among the grass.

Oh, the beauty of it all--especially the lone flower.

Could your mystery tree be Nyssa sylvatica? The bark and leaf color are similar: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nyssa_sylvatica

Hi Marty- not a chance in the world. Totally wrong. It's definitely some sort of cherry, a domestic one that went wild perhaps. But thanks for the suggestion.
