A Sweet Gum leaf on a young tree next to the Upper Lobe of The Lake in Central Park.

I've always like that leaf- the species is not native to Mass. but there's a beauty on the U. Mass. campus- a big old one with branches down to the ground.

My Elizabeth and I are hoping to spend another 3-4 days in NYC in August which will include walking the north side of Central Park.
