We went on the Fullerton City Downton Tour yesterday. Right in the middle of the town, this tree is preserved. A planter is built around to protect its roots and the surrounding space can be used for sidewalks.
The first palm tree photo was taken a week ago at Laguna Beach where we spent half a day enjoyed the mild sun and soft breeze. The second palm tree photo was taken by Laguna Lake where we take our walks several times a week. Palm trees are strong and sturdy, grown in a warmer climate. Their roots are short but trunks are hardy. Forty or fifty feet tall palm trees can easily be transplanted to distant locations and reestablished roots without too much stress.
My entry for the week shows the Jacaranda trees in this 1930 neighborhood. Jacaranda trees are on both sides of Jacaranda Street and Brookdale Street in Fullerton City, California. Every year in the month of May, Jacaranda trees are in full bloom of lavender flowers. The trees are reaching out and touching the branches from the opposite side of the streets and create an arch pathway. By this time of the month, the flowers start to fall, the sidewalks look like a lavender carpet. The neighbors enjoy and appreciate this annual beauty.
