Hey there, time to look up some more! Any ideas what these things are at the tips of this tree’s branches?
I’ll be back later for guesses and answers.
This is a Tulip Tree or Yellow Poplar, Liriodendron tulipifera, and believe it or not, those are parts of the seed pods that are still hanging on after all these months. Check out the ground beneath.
Back on July 21, we showed the seedpods forming. By August they had dried and started falling.
