ID'ing With Lou

The Tree Book for Kids and Their Grownups

What kind of an aunt gives a kid a book with the dubious intent of pleasing herself in future outings together? A less than selfless one no doubt. Luckily my nephew Lou is a good sport and indulged me today by taking out said book and gamely learning to identify some of his neighborhood trees. We left the streets of Fort Greene with the stink of the gingko (female) on our gloves, but not before Lou figured out the names of a few trees in his neighborhood. Below Lou figuring out the London Plane Tree, a familiar site as it's the tree he can see out his bedroom window.

The latest growth and leaf buds on Lou's London Plane.
