This incredibly beautiful tree amazed me with it's color. So, while driving to the McDonald Observatory, I asked my husband, Robert, to pull over so we could photograph it. I am on the quest to determine what it is. I am torn between velvet ash or green ash.
My clues are yellow fall leaves, dark bark that looks diamond shaped. The leaves appear soft and velvety.
I think I am going with it being the Velvet Ash tree.
|The fall color is yellow.|
|The bark was dark and deeply ridged into diamond-like shapes.|
|The leaf is soft and almost velvety on the underside. This image was so dreamy like I had to include it.|
