Up, up and away

Think spring, it is one day closer.
These are tulip trees, sometimes called yellow poplar.
These three are located on the Tulip Tree Trail in Rondeau Provincial Park.
They aren't the largest specimens in the park but I like the grouping.
They can grow to over a 100 feet tall(35meters)
Tulip-tree's flowers provide abundant nectar to bees, while the seeds feed squirrels, birds, rabbits, and deer. Deer and rabbits browse on saplings and young trees.
Liriodendron tulipifera
