manzanita shrub on Gilbert Street in Oakland, California
Monday, December 19, 2011

I love manzanitas, and one of the things that I especially like about them are the trunks. They are very hard and very red, which makes for a wonderful contrast with the deep green foliage.

I also like the way the next door neighbor's red car looks in the background. I wonder if that manzanita shrub influenced their color choice! :-)
