There are three types of oak tree in Guadalupe Oak Grove Park, and one of them is evergreen! This is a lovely neighbourhood park which attracts dog walkers and people like Jamie and myself looking for a nice short walk before it rains.
The three types of oak are Valley Oak, Blue Oak, and Coast Live Oak. The Valley Oak has leaves similar to the oak trees I remember from my childhood in England. In fact, I didn’t know there was any other kind. So, not only did we enjoy a nice walk today, we also learned something.
We saw several woodpeckers and lots of different song birds, but none of them sat still long enough to have their picture taken.
