    Newbie from Westford, Mass

    Below are pics of our pool. A basic liner, it's where our 3 kids learned to swim (and a few friend's kids and grandkids). We're on our 2nd liner, but our "kids" are now 28-34! Hoping our grandkids learn to swim in it too (our "kids" need to hurry up, though!).

    No. In the photo with the house most of the visible trees are deciduous; a couple of maples and a lot of oak. In the other photo there are forsythia bushes along the fence (resplendent with yellow in the spring), with oak and pine in the background.

    I like blue spruce too!
