For a change of pace on a rainy weekend, how about a quiz? The question: Can you identify what kind of trees these are?
If you can, please tell me by leaving a comment below.
I shot this frame the other day on Francisco Street in Newport Beach, CA. The street trees looked impressive to me. Considering their size and complicated structure, and the apparent size of the root systems as far as they are visible above ground, I was surprised to see no sign that the sidewalks were buckling.
Clearly this species is suited to a subtropical climate and would not grow in latitudes like ours. Too bad. Streets look more interesting with trees like that. (hh)
