Look how green everything is! It seems like it happens overnight.
Yes, it's another tree. I can't help myself. They're all so beautiful and unique. They have their own personalities. This one is so graceful. It seems feminine to me, a woman's shape and grace. Unfortunately, her nipped waist is not so lovely when you look at her from the side.
I'm wondering if they'll be removing her soon?
The Park Board has been leaving large limbs that fall partially into the lake, and decaying trees along the shoreline, as part of their naturalization and habitat revitalization program. But this one is right on the walking path. Seems a little more dangerous to leave it.
The downed trees really are providing a lot more cover for the wildlife. I've seen at least 5 pair of nesting mallards tucked in here and there. I'm sure there's more. I can't wait to see all the ducklings swimming around!
