Siberian Larch @ Morton Arboretum
We wandered around for a bit in the China/Japan section of the Morton Arboretum this weekend and while much of the plant-life is in dormancy, one of the standouts was a couple of Larch trees that were in full bud-mode. There were a few different Larch trees - Larix X - that are in a stand together. This section is close to Route 53, so without foliage on the trees, you get a little bit of road noise, making this part of the Arboretum a little less 'remote-feeling'.
Here's a couple of not-so-good photos of the tree buds:
