dragoness_e: Me in the pink straw cowboy hat (Pink Hat)

After taking far too many pictures of tree ferns, I hurried on to the California section; it was getting later in the afternoon and I was very hungry, so I was going to wind up the visit after that. On the way there, I came around the other side of the duckpond and took lots of pictures of overly tame waterfowl, which I'll cover in my next post.

Scattered through the park were original trees that had been left in place and labeled. These also count as California trees.

Torrey Pine




Monterrey Cypress






Manzanita
A shrub-tree noted for its beautiful red wood and little white flowers.





Knob-Cone Pine
Knob-Cone Pines are weird. The seed cones grow right on the trunk, rather than at the ends of the branches. It's also one of those species that needs a wildfire to make the seed cones open.

Whoa, the Torrey Pine looks so interesting. Are the pine cones growing on the trunk?

:D The pictures look beautiful, so does the weather.
