Some flowers and a tree that puts out deep red leaves in spring. It wasn’t labeled, but I think it’s a Krauter Vesuvius plum. Lit from the front the leaves are a deep purple. Lit from behind they’re this super-bright red.
Indian Hawthorn flowers in bloom. The empty lot is the greenbelt under a set of transmission wires. Hawthorns will grow as bushes, and make up a *lot* of hedges around here, but they can also be trained to grow upward and pruned into trees. There are several spaced along this block at the same stage of growth.
When I parked for a hike at the marsh preserve, I discovered that I hadn’t actually put my camera in my backpack as I’d intended. So I decided to see what I could do with my phone camera, which mostly meant landscapes and plants.
