There is a type of tree with clusters or rows of little leaves on a stem, instead of just one big leaf per stem…I don’t like them. It’s stupid, but…I get too distracted. I see them when I’m in the car (often driving, unfortunately), or when I’m out walking, and I don’t want to look away because the leaves always look one-dimensional. It’s like the tiny-ness of them causes the shadowed and lighted surfaces to be confused and intermixed in such a way that you can’t really tell what is what. And they look to be one uniform colour, even when you know there should be shadows and illumination, just like in all the other trees.

It’s weird. I could look at them for hours.
