|Populus Freemontii - The Tree at the Narrows (a big metal tree sculpture at Tempe Town Lake) by Joe Tyler|
shade me with your rusty leaves while the wind whistles through your iron boughs
There's another tree-that's-not-a-tree constructed to display leaves of people who donated money to plant real trees. This one is called "Populus Freemontii - The Tree at the Narrows" and is right by Priest Road and the end of the path on the north bank.
I observed a troop of Boy Scouts with bicycles reading the sign and checking out the plant life along the north bank. It's plentiful, and does offer a good opportunity to study many types of native plant life.
|It takes me back to LIZARD ACRES!!|
(perfect recognition on my part BTW, it is the same artist)
|It does need a rusted lizard or two...|
Just an incredibly great day to be out riding a road bike. I did my tri-city tour (Phoenix, Scottsdale, Tempe), and saw many others out enjoying the warm day on two wheels. Get up. Go ride.
