King palm reflection on the neighbor’s wall

clintonpark_palm_reflection_king

サンフランシスコの庭に植えたとき、この「ユスラヤシ」というヤシの木は50センチしかありませんでした。13年経って、こんなに大きくなりました。初秋はサンフランシスコにまたいました。

It’s hard to believe I planted this cold-hardy King palm in 2000 when it was half a meter tall. Now it’s the tallest tree in my San Francisco back garden. Below its reflection is the 100 year old, redwood “butler’s pantry” we removed from the apartment during the renovation. When I was there this fall, I up-lit the trunk.
