This is the tree in front of the parsonage. It turns this incredible golden colour every Fall. The colour almost glows - it is truly beautiful. I am not sure my picture taken on my Blackberry does it justice (did I mention I got a Blackberry? :-)). No one seems to know what kind of tree this is. Perhaps some sort of elm? It seems to be the last tree to get leaves in the Spring and one of the first to lose them in the Fall. In fact, most years all the leaves fall off in a matter of a few hours over one day.
