In the shadow of the tallest tree

arboretum3I guess if you asked me if I had a favorite tree, it would be the sequoia. Even when young, (like this one) the base of the tree quickly grows stout, and the bark color is reminiscent of some of my favorite red-haired people. They are fun to draw and fun to paint. And they leave quite a shadow. This sequoia is growing in Washington Arboretum, a vigorous bike ride’s distance from my home.
