Backyard Tupelo Tree (Sourgum)

Each week we are adding more and more foliage to our once barren backyard.

This week's addition is a 15 ft. Tupelo tree aka Sourgum.  It's leaves will turn red, orange and yellow in the fall which I think will be so beautiful  I love that it attracts many spring pollinators which will be great for the fruit trees I want to plant on the other side of my yard.

I'm glad that in about 3 years I'll have a great shade tree to sit under :)

Books and shade trees are my kind of summer.
