The faces of he Seagrape change with the light. Above a new leaf with sun from the front. Below a new leaf with the sun behind it.
Above is a rare shot, taken in January 2 years ago when the cold caused all the leaves to fall off, this has only happened twice in 20 years to our tree. (carvers like to use the wood, it is easy to carve with)
Common sight in February, the leaves fall to the ground, but the new growth is already there, and most of the time it is covered in leaves year round. They are hardy plants and love salt water. They are habitats for many birds and snake and small mice.
April leaves on the ground and in the middle, new leaves in center of old leaves about to fall off, enlarge for details.
