Palos verdes

Paloverde with Many New Branches 1994

Palos Verdes is the name of a wealthy town south of Los Angeles. Palos verdes is a good description in Spanish of the conspicuous ‘green branches’ of the tree that botanists classify as Parkinsonia aculeata and that bears the common name paloverde even in English. I photographed these many new branches of one on the fringe of Great Hills Park on February 27th. If you’d like to see some rather different views of this kind of tree that have appeared here, you can.
