Tamarack

.
One of my favorite trees is a large tamarack that soars above the house. The tamarack, also called larch, is unique among conifers in that it is also deciduous; that is, it sheds its leaves each fall and grows new ones in the spring.

At this time of year, the tamarack’s needles are a gorgeous gold, contrasting in hue and texture with the pachysandra that curves around its trunk:


I just like that.
