In an earlier post, entitled ‘Motorcycle Miles Pt 2: Under the spreading arms of a mystery tree’, I asked for a bit of help.
["One of my original images from Strathroy, Ont.": snaps GH]
I shared photos of a lovely tree and its unusual leaves and wondered if you could identify it for me.
(I thought it was some kind of maple; I was wrong and that really doesn’t happen very often. And if you believe that, then you’re a new reader, right?)

Liz, a reader, asked, “Is it a tulip tree?”
After hours of research (and if you believe that... ) I do conclude it is a Tulip Tree aka Yellow Poplar.
Link to Old Dominion Wildlife, an informative site, and learn more about the tree from a naturalist’s point of view.
Thanks to Liz a mystery is solved.
Unfortunately, Liz, I ran out of prizes a few years ago.
But world-wide fame is almost assured.
