  • thanks, d! as i drove down the road with bruno, my dog, (on my way to pick up manure for the garden!), we passed this stand of trees. soooo, on the way back, had to stop & snap off a couple, then get the heck out of the rain!!

    Simple but thought provoking which is always a successful combination . I particularly like the inclusion of the gap in the trees on the left which unleashes the imagination . Well done .

  • thank you so very much, sweep! found this spot on a manure run – my garden benefitted & so did i!!
