"Aspen on the Way to the Blueberry Farm"
wrapped in aluminum
I found this grove of aspen while taking a really sketchy dirt road that leads to a SWEET blueberry farm outside of Ellicottville NY.
Seriously, not something I should have been driving a 20 year old minivan on.
Anywho we're back to the blue and silvers!
Birches are not closely related to aspens. Aspens closest relatives are the varioud poplar species, cottonwoods, and a bit more distantly to willows.
