    Steve, how delightful to see your humorous interpretation of the Marquand Tree and its brick interior.

    Something about the Three Little Pigs came to my mind...

    Nice to smile even in the throes of preservation urgencies.

    It was a joy to take this Inventory Walk with you, at long last, and I'll be back!

    Cheering on all your good works,

    your fellow nature blogger, Carolyn Foote Edelmann
