submitted 2/15/09, flowers. Taken in Spring- a pink flower that sprang up near my house- I don't know what it is because it only showed up one year. A horticulturist used to live in my house 30 years ago, so we keep finding new flowers as we clear out the neglected gardens. Last year we found an apple tree and a pear tree!
