We have quite a few pine trees in my neighborhood. Altadena is at the base of the San Gabriel Mountains and the Angeles National Forest.

Wow, I am a half-hour away from you in Sherman Oaks.

My answer is the same then: pines, palms, chaparral, scrubby, dry, typical SoCal vegetation.

Lot's of Oak trees and blackberry vines everywhere. Maybe that's why they call this area Fair Oaks as there are many of them and they are big ones too.
Everything has bloomed and it's nice and green now. Just have to watch out for the poison oak!

wow! that sounds and looks beautiful! so nice that things are green for you (and slowly becoming greener for me too!!) are there blackberries actually on those vines? are they wild? do you pick them and take them home? are they at your home? should i ask 87 more questions?

astral_queen astral_queen OP

Yes, they get plenty of blackberries on them and I do pick them at times. No, I don't have any of those vines on my property. Too invasive.

We even have dunes in Northern Indiana, I have woods behind my home, lots of trees back there, and lots of deer, wild turkeys, squirrels, etc. And the foliage in the Fall is something to behold, it's just amazing. That's why I love my state so much.

Well...right now...only the pine and cedar are green. It looks much like the first photo from will. But...soon the maple, oak, poplar, ash, etc,.will be budding. In the late spring, my world explodes into lush greenness. Probably why green is my favorite color. Im surrounded by forests, rivers, streams and lakes. I truly despise the winters here...long and cold. But...cant beat summer. Not even with a stick:)

I live in an area where I get the best of both worlds. Over 90% of my state is forested....so a lot of trees, both hard and softwoods, along with an abundance of wildlife.


And then there's the Atlantic, which I could never be very far away from---20 minutes away.


5-6 hrs. north, the mountains, though not as majestic by western standards.

I don't know what you think is cute about it. It's the only house in town with a sidewalk in front. They only paved the center of the street, because that's all the money they had. A few years later they paved our side up to the curb, but still not the other side. I have no idea who paid for the paving.

Yes, that was my first Little Free Library, made by gluing cedar tiles to a steel tool cabinet with hot melt glue. Big mistake! When spring came the glue melted and the cedar all fell off. Now I use a steel tool cabinet five feet tall.

maybe the pretty red bench and LFL made it look nicer than it is? it just looks like a place i'd enjoy taking a walkabout.

i cant believe the glue melted!!! it would have frustrated me. i like the cabinet! so sturdy. and the red theme is nice.
