Post Guy looks a little quizzical. Perhaps he’s curious about why has such a severe flat top.
Once I get to the bus stop, there are several trees to wait under.
The bus stop takes me to the light rail station and then to the thrift store. The stations were I live are each decorated in a different theme. The two I see on the way to the thrift store are not two of my favorites, but I do like one thing. The elevator at one is decorated with a mosaic of reflectors. I love the idea of using not artistic things to make art and the reflectors catch the light really nicely.
There are also several ginkgo trees on the walk between the light rail station and the thrift store. Ginkgo leaves are one of my favorite shades of green and the yellow they turn in autumn is just as pretty. They also satisfy my nerdiness because they’re really interesting trees. NERD ALERT! The ginkgo is classified in it’s own taxonomic classification and is basically a living fossil as it is closely related to species from 200 million years ago. It’s thought that wild growing ginkgo trees died out and the tree was saved and continued only by human cultivation. It’s nice when humans save something instead of killing it. Also, the Chinese name basically means “tree with the leaves like a duck foot”. How awesome is that?
