The pedestrian bridge provides a platform to observe the tall trees of Tapawingo Park. The flowering twigs of this silver maple tree (Acer saccharinum) was right next to the deck of the bridge. This twig is almost all pistillate flowers except for one staminate flower.
This twig shows almost all staminate flowers, a very few pistillate flowers. The Wabash River is in the background.
This twig shows about half pistillate and half staminate flowers.
