My family went to a nature garden in Vancouver, B.C. in December. It was wonderful (we love gardens like this, and they had plants from all over the world; everything blooms and grows at different times).
This is a Lebanon Pine Cedar tree. I loved the bark, and the way the needles grow. They grow exactly opposite each other, in small bunches.
This black squirrel was small, black, and fluffy. It was quite cute, and stood still for awhile while I got a picture of it amongst all the fallen leaves.
