I was just out in the backyard hanging some clothes on the line to dry (we do that here) and noticed how pretty and tropical our trees look. The palm tree in the picture is actually in the neighbor's yard, although we have one, too. The poky tree is in our yard -- not sure what those melon-looking things are, but I found a huge, rotten orange fruit on the ground, so they must be related. The giant pole obsessed Eric for a while. They're all over the neighbourhood, topped by these big mesh globes. Someone told him they were for venting sewage (lovely) but aren't in use any more.
