Garden Tuesday!

We were down at the lower end of the yard, looking at some yew branches which will have to be tide aside to facilitate entry to the yard for the wedding in 11 days.  Across the driveway from said yews, my eye fell upon the trunk of one of our larger trees.

I think it's an ash, but it might be an oak, or maybe something else.  I don't think it's a walnut tree.  But I could be confused.  I don't usually look at it from 10 feet away; usually I'm gazing upon it from a few hundred feet away, enjoying the majesty of 200+ year old trees.

For reference, the pillar next to it is about 3 feet square.  The tree is big.

Happy Garden Tuesday, everyone!

11 days?!?!?! Time sure is flying by!!! Oh how I wish I knew what kind of tree that is. I haven't learned PA trees yet. There's just so many of them!!!

Thanks for sharing, Marjie...

I am not sure what it is. It's pretty though!

It isn't going anywhere for another century or thereabouts, so plenty of time to find out.

i'm hopeless at identifying trees, even if they have tell-tale features. my brother can name a tree in both english and latin just by looking at its leaves!
hooray for weddings. :)
