Today is the first of the month, also known as Theme Day for participating City Daily Photo bloggers. This month's theme is Wood. This is an obvious photo choice, but can you blame me? As a Tree City, South Pasadena might actually have more trees than people. I can hardly think of a street that isn't shaded by a lush canopy. The big thicket gives our landscape a magical sort of Druid-ish/Middle Earth quality. It's a surprise for those who think the Los Angeles area is limited to freeways, beaches, strip malls and palms. Not to disrespect our beloved palms, it's just that here they are upstaged by camphors, oaks, elms, flowering pears, crape myrtles, ginkos, junipers, maples and sycamores .
