Here’s the doomed oak again, the one that lost half its trunk after the last rain. Around one o’clock the sun just lit the outer branches, leaving the inner branches in shadow. It looks almost like a head of broccoli cut in half.
There is one tree different from all the oaks, pines and redwoods in the park, out in the middle of the lawn. Maybe it’s a magnolia?
There are so many different kinds of tree in the park, and they cast shadows on each other, like this little lawn tree, partly shaded by an oak at least 20 feet away.
Outside the park I found this little shrublet next to a big tree, half covered by the shadows cast on the grass.
