The garlic I planted outside is pushing up scapes, now that the indoor pot is done

Garlic, mystery trees, Textiles and Tea, and Larry
Gary planted these, maybe peppers, outside the fence among the daylilies. I like a combo of food and flowers, too.
And the tree that was planted on the street to replace the dead maple needs a blogista to identify, please. I feel I should know it, but can't find it in my tree books.
Pictures to show size against houses, foliage, bark. The leaves are purplish like my Japanese maple, but the leaves are not maple. The trunk looks like a cherry to me. No blossom.
Any help gladly accepted by neighbor Karen and me.
But the tree books did come in handy as models for a few minutes of drawing
Yesterday's Textiles and Tea featured Sarah Saulson, a weaver largely of commissioned Jewish prayer shawls , observing the ritual rules of the two thousand year tradition, while applying her own inventive design
She also creates other woven artworks such as these three pieces, retirement gifts for three physicists, each noting their key work in the field, using graphs from papers they'd written.
And garments like these
Where she paints the warp with dyes
She's also active with weavers in Ghana, Guatemala and India in the WARP (Weave a Real Piece) project where artists from different cultures and traditions work together.
Here she's showing the strip weaving work of Guatemalan women, in their case to be worked on a backstrap loom
In the course of searching for the tree books, I came across an old book of Larry cartoons, had to share a few favorites
Happy day everyone. Yesterday a brave New Jersey lady testified in the January 6 hearings. Cassidy Hutchinson is from Pennington, a skip up the road from here.
NJ sends many stars, Queen Latifa, Bruce, Bon Giovi, and writers, Joyce Carol Oates, John MsFee, sports stars, politicians, Booker, Katzenbach (stood up to Nixon) loads of great folks. Alas we also own Christie and Alito, further down the animal kingdom.
But Cassidy may prove to be the greatest mover and shaker of all, if she brings down TFG. Let's hope.
