Some of you asked about the funny sculpture yesterday - according to the sign it was actually meant to be a bird - it sure didn't look like a bird to us ! We were at MY Cowspotdog Arboretum and Gardens and took a trial we hadn't been on before called the Live Oak Trail. Along the way we came across an open grove where lots of trees had been removed and there was a sign up explaining that this was a grove of Camphor Trees that are an invasive tree from Asia and they are being eradicated from MY park. Even the stump of the tree had a very strong smell and Mom said it actually smelled nice to her. We kept walking and came across this bridge that leads to the Rosemary Trail but for some reason this is the ONLY trail in MY park where doggies are not allowed so we didn't go that way. We did discover this odd looking lichen which we found out is called "Christmas Lichen" due to it red and white colors - pretty cool huh!
