Apple tree, again. Sick of snow yet?

The tree in the previous picture is a Sitka spruce. The branches are tremendously strong. It's known to be the strongest commercial softwood. It was used to build the "Spruce Goose"... One of Howard Hughes great accomplishments. And I read that our modern Howard Hughes... Elon Musk, is building his Mars spaceship out of stainless steel. The ordinary can become amazing (in the right hands!).
