Nicely done Chris.
Chris: You can't beat a bucket of sepia for atmospheric effect Frank..
I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.

A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the earth’s sweet flowing breast;

A tree that looks at God all day,
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;

A tree that may in Summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair;

Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.

Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.
--Joyce Kilmer
Chris: Very nice too Ginnie!

Looks to be delightful. I would enjoy the shade of the tree or of the pavilion thing. Is this another [part of your estate?
Chris: No not my estate, not this time

I think that I shall never see
A billboard lovely as a tree
In fact unless the billboards fall
I'll never see a tree at all
