No, no photoshopping here. This beautiful tree showed itself to me and a friend taking a walk last fall. She lives directly across from Central Park and declares that she never walks there! I had to twist her arm that day to join me. Where I live, on the Colorado grasslands, you can drive for 25 miles and never see a single tree. So you can understand my obsession when I have an opportunity to witness this annual miracle of trees and an entire park full of them. I know that my friend will come with less arm-twisting next time I visit!
