Cedar Elm Turning Yellow with Wispy Clouds 4889

Click for better clarity.

Why am I showing you just a part of this cedar elm tree, Ulmus crassifolia, turning its reliable yellow on December 3?

1) That’s all there was of the tree. Naah, trees don’t grow in parts like that. Read on.

2) So I can be artsy and talk about things like negative space and complementarity. Well, you can believe that if you want to, but…

3) If I’d aimed any farther to the right, the picture would have included an edge of the large and boxy building that houses the discount warehouse called Costco. I had no desire to show that, nor have you to see it.
