There's a lot of juniper and sagebrush where I live. Also there are actual tumbleweeds!! I'm not used to them yet... every time i see one i'm like shit we live out west!!! lmao
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.
conifers are my very favorite type of tree, Jan!!!! (hi im Andrea but you can call me Dre! nice to meet you!!!) i looked at pics of the san gabriel mountains and angeles national forest just now....absolutely gorgeous. i'm definitely gonna have to go there in the near future. <3
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?
Lush when it's not winter. The Finger Lakes area of NYS is beautiful.
i just googled (cuz i'd never even heard of the finger lakes!! never been quite that far northeast) and WOW!!! so beautiful. i'll have to put that on my mental list of places to visit. thank you for sharing about that area.
Lots of wineries too if you're interested in that. The waterfalls are what I love the most.
wineries can be p fun but i LOVE A GOOD WATERFALL.
It's been a long time, but I used to go up your way on weekends and the area is magnificent - especially in the Fall.
In the summer, you can live on the lakes with a small boat.
My then-boyfriend used to run corporate weekend bus trips to various places. One days was spent at Finger Lakes Race Track.
Right now it looks like this:
In the Summer it looks like this:
ahhh!!!!! that looks too cold right now :(
In general Bulgaria is a very green place, 35% of it alone is just forests.
that sounds so so lovely
In general, Bulgaria is actually Finland, but only written with the fourth foot.
You're not Bulgarian unless you want something for almost free but top quality.
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:)
that sounds so gorgeous and lush, carla!!! im jealous. i have no idea what the summer will be like here... im hoping for green but everything is so brown right now that my hopes are low. fingers crossed tho!! it makes sense why green is your favourite colour. so much life.
thats a really pretty view!! i bet those shrubbiez are cute when theyre green!! do you also have a city skyline view??? it feels like its been ages since ive seen an actual city lmao
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.
oh my corn... i would be collecting so many berries and making so much jam and cobbler.....
Living in the Midwest, we have just about everything. Lots of farm fields, beautiful lakes, but no flowering bushes in the wintertime.
My husband would say....WEEDS. LOL
i love a nice lake!!!!
hahaha sounds like something my dad would say!
lol Men they do think alike don't they? lol
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.
DUNES!!!!!!!!! have you been to the ones near you? i cant believe they're in indiana. do yall have like dune riding and sledding? i think they do here. im stoooooked to go.
in east TN the fall foliage was so gorgeous too... i missed it when i was in CO this autumn. not quite as astounding as the smoky mountains covered in yellow and orange and red.
Yes, I have been to the Dunes in Indiana. But just one time, it's too far from my home.
I agree, TN has beautiful foliage as well.
that's a weird lookin horse
i would kill to be that close to the ocean again. do you go a lot??
and those mountains.... still SO majestic imo <3
im just... so happy for you and absolutely seeeething with jealousy
I am surrounded by farms. The picture was taken in February and that is a crop picking crew at the end of the street.
wow!! it looks like a really cute area. is that a little free library right there too? i love those
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.
If you go looking for a steel tool cabinet, red is almost the only color there is.
Erm.... It's made outta concrete.
oh no... the concrete jungle~~
Hehe, yeah to be honest straight outta the town I live in it's usually all just barren moorland.
i used to have a moor OBSESSION!!! im calm about it now lmao but they are so beautiful and creepy and i like it so much
Well, according to the video, it was still quite alright back in 1999:
Another take on the subject:
I live in Connecticut. It's a mountainous forest with some towns sprinkled over it.
Extensive and a pain in the ass.
