We Interrupt This Heat Wave

Okay, stick a fork in me--I'm done! These temperatures have roasted me. So I thought I'd give you something to perhaps make you think "cool" or "frosty".

I was surprised to find that these pics were taken in February 2004. I had to orient myself to decide what direction I was facing when they were taken, as there has been substantial growth of shrubs, trees and the addition of a huge flower bed between where I was standing and the huge spruce tree you see in picture one.

And this is facing northwest. See the stunted birch tree midway between the icicle and the spruce tree? That fell down and was replaced by the ladder and trumpet vine which you have seen in other posts. And the spruce tree is giant now.

I am just amazed at how much things change when we don't really realize it.
Stay cool--it's supposed to be over 100 degrees on the heat index here on Thursday. I'm mmmmmeeeeeellllllllttttttiiiinnnnngggggg.........
