    Simple Pleasures

    Was cold today, first real bite of fall. Of course this put me on alert as I felt the urgency to prepare for winter.

    Design Time

    A lot of you may have seen this Spruce before. I've been thinking alot about its nebari. While this is a nice tree it does have a major flaw with the nebari.
