Everything grows here – and it grows big.
While we were hiking, we stopped and gawked at this tree.
Now see it with a person added for scale.
I can’t even get all of the tree’s spread in the camera frame! Later, we came across a wide field of clover.
It grows across this entire slope and down the hill into the creek below.
This is bunny heaven.
Even the leaves on the grown are huge – my very dirty and muddy foot shown for scale.
On the block where we live there is a tree that blooms these tulip-shaped flowers. I cannot wait to find out what tree this is and what it will do in the spring and summer.
If I were a farmer, I’d want to live in California. Perhaps there is a lesson here.
