Becca Givens at ‘On Dragonfly Wings with Buttercup Tea‘ has been hosting Sunday Tree for five years. Today is my first discovery of her blog. I make my initial entry with photos of the tree I took at LA Arboretum.

We enjoy some privacy at home. We like to feel free to move around the house without drawing attention to the neighbors. Our second story windows are facing some neighbors. In 2005, my husband and I decided to plant a row of cypress trees to serve as a natural fence. It provides green to sooth the eyes as well as some privacy to our daily activities. The first two photos were taken when my husband planted the trees. The third photo was taken in 2011. The trees had grown quite tall. The last photo was taken today.
I want to thank Naomi Byrnes‘ comment about this post, “Amazing to see the growth over ten years. I’m inspired realizing it’s worth planting something today for the life I want in the future.”

The Central Garden at the Getty Center, L.A. is an evolving aesthetic work of art, with tree-lined walkways that lead visitors through extraordinary sights, sounds, and scents. More than 500 varieties of plant material are used in the landscaping. The Central Garden is created by artist Robert Irwin.
Daily Prompt: Aesthetic
The Laguna Lake is getting dark. The sunlight makes it’s last peek from behind the tree before it decent to the horizon.
The rain clouds are getting darker and darker. The blue sky and the sunlight still try to show their brightness through the dark clouds. Californians are not used to drive in the rain. The commuters have their headlights on, try to get home as soon as possible.
This squirrel is the resident in our neighborhood. He feels at home to relax on the tree branch in our backyard.
