There are four of these trees, a pair of each posted
at the front corners of the Federal Court House.
While I love the undulating lines of their trunks,
I don't generally take their pictures because
of the busy-ness taking place in the background.
However, the late afternoon sunlight
reflected so beautifully off the trunks, I had
to make an exception.
Fresh leaves have started to open, adding their
verdant strokes of color to the branches.
In a few weeks, the trees will be full of pale
pink flowers which will eventually shower
the surrounding grounds and passersby
with their tiny petals.
