I think that I shall never see...

...a poem as lovely as a tree.

I pass these trees every day - they're California Live Oaks (quercus agrifolia). At times I have found them somewhat ugly. I remember having one in my yard in Saratoga, and feeling it was quite a nuisance, dropping tons of acorns on the ground that needed to be swept up and disposed of.

It took a visit from a New Jersey teenager to remind me that California Live Oaks are quite unique and beautiful to behold!
