Just learned via A Gardener’s Notebook of this online tree identification applet. It basically works like a botanical key, so you need a twig with leaves right in front of you to really take advantage of it. On the other hand, you don’t have to keep your fingers marking three different spots in a field guide to figure out what you’ve got. If you like trees, you’ll want to stop by in any event.

What differentiates a bulb from a perennial plant is that the nourishment for the flower is stored within the bulb itself.…There is something miraculous about the way that a little grenade of dried up tissue can explode into a complete flower.
