I miss the mountains on summer days, but I am glad there are city parks to walk in. However, I still yearn for the visage of trees on the horizon, and I wish it would rain to help our micro-climates become a bit more verdant.
The video illustrates the view glancing up the cedar tree.
Here are some avocados on a tree that I spotted when I was walking. This tree looked magnificent basking in the golden late afternoon sun. Small things in life, like looking at a beautiful tree, bring me happiness.
I thought this tree branch was interesting. I spotted this branch in a field yesterday. There were tire tracks underneath where the branch was laying. The field looks really dry, but we did get a few drops of rain today. I keep hoping the heavens will open up and rain some more. This dry weather is not good for us, and we just need to be soaked in rain.
Someone asked me what an orange field looks like here in Southern California, so I decided to post a picture. When the trees are in bloom their blossoms carry the most heady fragrance that is alluring and invigorating all at once.
Today I rode my bike down a trail I like to take home. On this trail I photographed a little palm tree, which is located near a red rose bush.
This video shows the simple beauty of this small fan palm next to the rose bush. My California dream is admiring the simple beauty of things like palm trees and roses in spring. Anyone can appreciate these things, and spending time in nature is free.
