The Buttonwoods (aka Sycamore) are such lovely trees. Those huge maple-shaped leaves have an unusual yellow-green color and the flaking bark creates a patchwork of whites, reds, browns, and grays.
The area recently experienced something of a tropical storm--high winds and 2-4" of rain. I noticed that after the storm some branches displayed split open bark like we see here.
There was also a good deal of peeled bark on the ground around the clump of trees. Here I arranged some of the fallen material. Reminds me of cinnamon stick.
