Jen from El Paso makes it 19 people (and 29 trees!) in my contest. Normally I would ramble on about how great this is because it means the contest is still growing in its third year, but I have no time, dammit!
Here's Jen's email and tree:
Howdy howdy! Here's a tree doing its autumn thing on one of the community college campuses in El Paso Texas. It's mostly cactus and other pointy plants here in the desert, so a red tree like this is quite eye-catching when you come across one.
Thank you very much, Jen! Eye-catching indeed!
With any luck I will have an opportunity to write about something else and even interesting soon. Until then I remain yer pal,
