Winter Trees of Toledo

Wintertime vegetation, with its bare branches and drab brown shades, is not really my favourite. I’m more of a spring blossoms and autumn leaves kind of girl. But when you make an effort to stop and look, nature rewards you with unexpected splashes of colour and intriguing textures, even at this sombre time of year.

I have no idea what kind of tree this is, but its thousands of cascading seedpods give it a compelling texture

Again, I'm clueless as to its botanical classification, but the clusters of yellow berries are very attractive

If any of you happen to know the names of the last two trees, please drop me a line.
