She can't see all one thousand kinds of trees at once from this vantage point, but she can see multiple dozens--clusters of tiny red ones and single enormous blue ones, purple ones fading to white at the center, yellow ones whose petals are foot-long streamers fluttering gently in the breeze. Some of the flowers are growing directly out of the tree trunks; some sprout up from the roots to cover the ground with veins of color. Some are translucent. Some are luminescent. A shaft of sunlight hits a branch and all the buds on it unfold at once in a matter of seconds.
