I've mentioned before that we have a smoke tree. Just because I like to name them, it's Cotinus obovatus. This is the American Smoke Tree. Supposedly it's southern, but there are an awful lot of them used ornamentally in the north.
So here's mine. Boring. I made it look a little better by catching late afternoon light on it.
There is a beautiful one down the road. It turns lovely bronze and gold in the fall. You can see that at See One Last Blaze for Fall
The other day I walked past it and snapped a midsummer shot. Yup... it always looks better than mine.
More hot days here.
