Spring got off to a great start today.  We were 72 and sunny.  To my friends back East who endured the most miserable winter in recent memory, this stuff is wending its way to you… hang in there.

The tree in the above photo is a Russian olive tree.  I don’t recall why we decided to get a Russian olive tree — I mean I love olives and I always wanted an olive tree but the Russian olive tree produces no olives.  I have no idea what purpose a Russian olive tree serves.  Well, I don’t care what it does as long as it doesn’t annex my house or my Mustang.  There will be sanctions if it does.
