There seems to be a cult following for these trees. Understandably, I think. I've been admiring them in my neighborhood for years but only found out what they are this year, thanks to a friend who saw me drawing one in the spring.
Someone had knocked a branch off of that same tree and I found it this morning and brought it home to draw. The leaves faded faster than I could draw them, even with liberal spritzing with water and wrapping the broken branch end in a wet towel.
