There may be lots of pictures so give page time to load.



LaVonne seems to have a green thumb........most everything she plants grows.....even in the Arizona desert.
Since they've been in Arizona LaVonne has planted over 100 trees on their property and almost as many bushes and shrubs.

This following picture is of their front yard as it existed in June of 2001.......

Here are views of their front yard as of December 2002. They had added a nice concrete walkway along with a few trees visible in background...

Below are a couple pictures of the roses.
