So, someone not too long ago told me there’s a tree in the arboretum that reminded them of me.  I wasn’t sure how to take that so, walking right into it, I asked: "What do you mean?"  They replied, as if on cue: "Old and Gnarly."

So I cruised the arboretum today and almost gave up when I spotted it…The Grunge Tree. (The one in the foreground.)  It’s not just gnarly in the mid-section, it’s all over gnarly!

One of our nine loyal readers asked a few days ago for some spring campus pictures so my journey was really to try to get some of those – usual and unusual.  For those photos, click here.
