A trip to the local Oasis,2015.


By stan510


Growing wild are these palms. Washingtonia robusta and Canary Island date palm. Along with Acacias,Pampas grass and even Citrus and Stonefruit- “planted by homeless” Not shown in the photos. Its a one of a kind in the SF bay area. The grove has a steady supply of shallow groundwater. The whole hillside to the left had many drains to help a small French restaurant survive.

Your welcome Diane. Its nice to have something like that oasis looking tropical when its not feeling remotely tropical outside.
I had a few more..but they went over that 5mb just a tad. I have no idea why that happens without me doing a thing to change settings.
