Caesar, the cat;
Nadir, the red cedar tree.
See Caesar the cat rushing under the umbrella of Nadir’s branches to take cover from the heat.
It is nice to stand under Nadir: the branches are low almost to the ground, holding the fresh piney smell within the natural canopy while providing relief from the sun rays.
I looked up its “skirt” and took this photos: many, many branches there. Some branches not exposed to the sun have no needles anymore and break easily if you bend them.
The trunk is thick. If I hug it, I can only reach 3/4 of the way around it. Its bark is filamentous: if you pull a small piece you can notice thin fibers lines.
And here are two more shots of majestic Nadir from far away.
