Week 5- Mathis Plaza, Toms River, NJ

On March 4th, 2023, at 4:13 pm, I visited Toms River, New Jersey. On this day, in NJ, the weather was 43 degrees fahrenheit with a cloudy sky and at this location the wind was about 16 mph since it is close to shore. This picture was taken in Mathis Plaza, a small park located next to the Toms River on property that is owned and maintained by the Borough. It is part of a 3.74 acre area that includes a large lawn space with a gazebo, walkways along the water, a memorial, and a parking area. Near the gazebo area, there is a bush of these Junipers which are on evergreen trees and shrubs in the cypress family, Cupressaceae. The Juniperus genus includes about 70 species of plants. These plants typically have needle-like leaves and produce small cones or berry-like structures as their fruit. Many species of Juniperus are commonly used in landscaping and horticulture, as well as for their aromatic wood and berries, which have culinary and medicinal uses.
