Under the thorns

I loved standing under this silk floss tree watching rain clouds approach this week -- the silvery bark and gold-colored new growth stood out sharply against the darkening sky. Plus silk floss trees continue to just amaze me. I've been here four years and still can't get over the city being full of thorny giants that make lavish pink flowers and fluffy alien seed pods. The LA Arboretum also has a white one and a red one, both extremely beautiful.
