Has nothing to do with sound, but I wanted to share some pictures of our trees and flowers as summer approaches.

This is our Flowering Pear. We took the picture about a month ago, and it is so nice to have color early.

This is one of our Redbuds. It's a nice vibrant pink, and again was taken about a month ago (the trees bloom first).

Next was taken today by my wonderful wife. A nice patch of roses waiting to climb up the pergola (grand finale in the backgroud).

And. the grand finale. I don't know the exact name of this breed, but it's a Mandarin Honeysuckle. We have them climbing up two of our pergola posts. Last year they did nothing... This year, is amazing!

Happy Spring!

Every new picture of your homestead turns me green. Lovely vegetation!

Dear Steve, you suck.

just kiddin, I like purdy trees and nice yards and am jealous. Mine's covered in snow 8 months a year and can't do much with it.

Come to think about it, between your lovely home, way cool HT and your yard, you really suck.

My sentiments exactly, Mike. \:\)

Lovely flora there, Steve. \:\)
I can explain it to you but I can't understand it for you.

Wow, Steve, that looks fantastic!! You have a beautiful yard. Having blooming foliage like that really makes for a pleasing view.

I am in total agreement with Michael, You suck Steve ;\)

The trees here are just getting leaves on them, the buds have just popped and I have yet to see any flowers. I can still see snow on the ground from our last snow storm a couple weeks back. although we have seen some 20 + deg. weather this past weekend \:\)

You Pear tree looks beautiful, it would make for a great painting.

Steve, you apparently have an awesome life. Hope you are savoring each day.

And, well, you suck.

And give up on snowball fights and 4 wheel sliding (otherwise known as winter driving), are you kidding??
