These tree photos were all taken at Chicago Botanic Gardens or Morton Arboretum. I found these trees to be amazing or astonishing, due to their shape or special characteristics. My contribution today for Becky’s July Squares: Trees.

Rose Turtlehead, Figwort family
Amazing number of cones on this tree
Same tree, zoomed out
I see a face in this trunk – do you?
A nice place to sit and contemplate nature
Willow by a lake
The Japanese Garden at Chicago Botanic Gardens (CBG) has several of these interesting trees.
This tree exudes boldness, strength
Another view: Looking up into the intricacy of its branches from below.
