Lots of New Growth

The trees outside our balcony have finally pushed up high enough to start blocking our second-floor view, making it more and more difficult to wave bye to Anthony as he heads off to school.

I took the shot above this morning, then returned when it started raining in the afternoon...

Thirsty, Growing Trees

The pictures seem really muddy, though. Not sure why.


One comment so far...

Those look like “tree of heaven”. They are considered one of the worst trash trees in existence around here. Grow like crazy and they spread themselves through their root system, shooting up new shoots everywhere. One year our garden was getting completely overrun by big forests of them everywhere. They also smell rather skunky when you cut them.
