The Garry Oak and the Trembling Aspen

I didn't know that the Garry Oak is now a bit rare in Vancouver.  (Of course I'd never heard of the Garry Oak a month ago LOL).  I found one at Queen Elizabeth Park, and UBC Botanical Garden now has a "Garry Oak Meadow" of newly planted trees.

By the pond in the native garden at UBC, I heard a beautiful whisper and looked up to see leaves rustling in the wind.  I had found a trembling aspen by sound - a magical moment.
