A tree that smells like cotton candy (no joke)

Taking these photos in the woods, finally surrounded by fallen leaves, not as many as I would like but still a good amount, I was surrounded by the smell of fall. It was so refreshing and I didnt mind taking my time and trying new things with these photos, even though there were more people walking by me than I would have liked, I still put up with it. There are a lot of dog walkers around my area. But anyways back to the smells of fall, you guys have to go seek out a Katsura (Cercidiphyllum japonicum) tree, I am not kidding when I tell you that the fallen leaves smell like cotton candy. I remember learning about this tree a couple years ago in one of my Horticulture classes. We would go on nature walks and when we got to this tree the whole class picked up a pile of leaves to smell, we probably looked crazy to everyone walking by, but this tree, oh my goodness does it smell good. My neighbor has one in their yard and when I take my dog on a walk, ill pick up a pile of leaves to smell on my way by. Sounds crazy, but dont judge until you smell. Seriously. Cotton candy.
