The Garry Oak

This is a picture of the tree by the school where I work as a secretary. I absolutely love this tree. My Dad (age 94) did a needlepoint of it last year, from a photo. It is a Garry Oak and is protected species, but thrives in the Comox Valley and a few other special areas on Vancouver Island. Our school has an Environmental Group, which is doing a display to garner interest in their activities. One of the students took this photograph and emailed me to print it in color for their poster board. I thought I'd share it with everybody, just because I love it so much. It's spectacular no matter the season.
