Rainy day photos of Ally Center and JW Marriott hotel from street and my perch today. 


I don't know if there's a specific building I'm thinking of, or if it's just the style in general, but this building always makes me think of downtown San Francisco...

Hilton Head absolutely reveres its live oaks.  Here is one that a manmade lake was built around.  You are not allowed to cut live oaks down if you absolutely have to you must replace with many more.

Welcome to Charlotte this Live Oak from the Johns Island.  this model shown with the optional Spanish Moss (which is neither)

Only the females smell! Hopefully they chose correctly

Except Ginkoes can spontaneously change sex! No way around it really, other than picking the berries before they fall or applying a herbicide that stops the growth of the cones. 14 trees seems like a small enough number they could maintain them stink-free.

I didn't think that live oaks could grow away from the coast in NC or even northern Georgia since it rarely freezes at the coast, whereas the non-coastal areas of NC, SC, and N.   Ga. often dip below 32 degrees late at night in the winter.

You see live oaks  by Wilmington, Charleston, and Savannah, but they’re very hard to find in inland cities in NC or in Atlanta, for example.
