I prefer my own magnolia; there is more shade. This is photo of a Bodhi leaf. I love the long tale. It is unique.
I did not find enlightenment under the Bodhi tree. I kept wondering why the arboretum would dedicate the tree to the 14th Dalai Lama. I’m pretty sure he never visited.
My wife and I visited the Fullerton Arboretum. Gardeners packed the place to attend the annual Green Scene Plant & Garden show. It was full of 40 to 6o year old women wearing big floppy hats. I managed to find one young girl who looked out of place.
