Yellow poplar and bush~Mellow Yellow Monday~101512

Pretty poplar and yellow bush up off Highway 395.  I took this photo in 2009, during our October trip to the Sierra.  I'm just so anxious to see fall colors in our local mountains soon!  Mellow Yellow Monday for October 15, 2012.  To visit MYM, please go to:


  1. The tree on the right is Cottonwood, but the yellow tree looks to be Lombardy Poplar Tree, not aspen. Of course all three are related in the Populus family.

    The pretty yellow shrubs look to be Rabbit Brush much like the Rabbit Brush in and around Garner Valley.
    Lovely warm colours before the onset of freezing cold.


  2. What a pretty Poplar tree :-) Dropping by from Mellow Yellow Monday :-)
