Courtyard and Pepper Tree (2014)

The cuadrángulo (quadrangle courtyard) of Mission San Luis Rey de Francia in Oceanside, California. The large tree in the middle of the courtyard is the oldest “California pepper tree” in California. It’s the sole survivor of a grove of trees planted in 1830 with seeds brought to the Mission from South America.
