Garden Tuesday: Black Birch

I think this is a black birch. I love that so many trees flower, even those we don't think of as flowering trees. There are several of these in my yard; this one is right out front.

And I would be remiss if I didn't wish you all a Happy Flag Day. It's not that easy to decorate a round cake like an American Flag!

I don't have one flowering tree in my yard yet. I just can't decide on THE one. Love the Birch!
