I enjoyed the walk, and on the way down stopped to prowl around with the camera, mostly looking for textures and patterns. This small Schefflera digitata insisted on being photographed. Note that although the English common name for patē is seven-finger, leaves can have 3–9 leaflets, so when you count eight on this, please don't think I've misidentified it. The finely serrated edges and the texture of the leaflets make this easy to identify [he says, crossing his fingers].
I felt as if I'd arrived home after a long absence.
