Don't mind the rhodedendron. I don't know what's up with those brown leaves. Pictures like that one just make me wish I had a clothesline. Not for drying clothes on (kudos to all those who do!! But I can barely keep up with the laundry using my washer and dryer--I know my limitations), but for the aesthetic blog picture taking thing.
p.s. I should know better than to blog late at night. Words that I never use (like "kudos") start appearing in my writing.
