    Color, texture, light in a natural environment surrounded by giants... you must have gone out of your mind!! Mike, we planted a sequoia in a corner of our lot to "ground" smaller shrubs there and provide privacy to a lower "secret garden" on the house's side. Its been growing at 3' per year and something to see. It's a kind of "neighborhood watch". Love your photo!
