St James Park is an old fashioned kind of park, with tree canopied pathways and a large central area of grass. It is leafy. It is lovely. That’s all there is to it ….almost.
All the trees survived the earthquakes, as most other trees did throughout the city. They remained upright, unlike many of our buildings. There must be lessons to be learned in their leafy loveliness. (Oops, that’s a lot of unintended alliteration but I am not going to delete it because alliteration is ridiculously good fun.) Lessons about foundations, natural and harmonious proportions and resilient building materials, to mention a few.

The horizontal branches of this tree were so long and straight that from a certain angle I could make them look like individual, upright trees. Fun.
