|The leaves have a most unusual shape.|
I first came across this type of tree as a young nanny on holiday with my charges and family in Cornwall in the beautiful garden of Glendurgan, owned by the National trust, and was enchanted by the lovely shape of the leaves.
The second house we owned had an established Tulip Tree that guarded the way to the vegitable garden and green house and when we visited our current home for the first time and found there where four young trees here, as well as others we valued, we took it as a good omen.
|The leaves are beginning to turn.|
|The fruit, the flowers are long over.|
Last year I used a lot of the leaves in an art project for my college course.
