Another Gnarly
Another Gnarly

With its green canopy hat.  And the light peeking through.  These shrubby trees are a testament to sturdiness, as they get so very very little water.  Our rainfall is supposedly ten inches per year; in the five years we have been here, I doubt we have had ten inches total.

The gnarly twisty branches must be in part due to the wind patterns. The wind is often from off-shore unless the Santa Anas are blowing. Then there are the infrequent winds from the north that sometimes bring a little rain.

Maybe there should be a gnarly tree contest.  Or exhibit.  Imagine an art show whose theme is “gnarly.”  Hm…
