Love all the images!

The squirrel looks rather sleepy in that shot. Do you like your serviceberry tree? I should ask if it's yours first. :) I would like to buy one for our yard but have never seen one around here to see how big they get or what they look like when grown. Is this one full grown and if so how big? Thanks Karen. Pam

Lisa Gordon said...
