    Thank you for the honor! This is the best that tree has ever looked. When I transplanted that tree from the woods, it was about 2 ft tall and only as big around as my thumb. Several years ago, it was all growing to one side and was really uneven looking, so we trimmed it up as best we could. It looked like we had really butchered it, but that is the shape that it grew into and really looks nice now. :p

    I really love the colors. I guess that's one thing I miss about living in Arizona. Though we have seasons they are nothing like the midwest US.
    It's a beautiful tree. You did a good job, I think. dooley
