A walk in the Arboretum

Now and then I take my dog for a walk at the Arboretum at the Central Experimental Farm.

This willow tree has a particularly twisted trunk that looks as if the tree spiraled up while it grew.

The sketch below is what I think of as the Avenue of the Pines.  The inside rank is Ponderosa Pine which is not supposed to grow anywhere this far north.  Behind are Scot's pine, black pine and white spruce. My friend, Sailor, had a good sniff of each one, between chasing squirrels.
