In this weeks photo you can see the evergreen leaves of Pacific Madrona or Arbutus. This species is found almost exclusively on rocky costal shores such as those found at Klootchman Park. I really like the way the leaves look probably because they remind me of the wings of a Sulfur Butterfly. You can see other photos from Klootchman Park at Flickr

    Arbutus is awesome. The flickers, waxwings and robins love the fruit.
