29. Now this is the most pathetic breed of pines I have ever seen. It has no real form, and when it gets tall enough it grows up on to the roof and just lays there. I don't get it. I told Todd to tear it out but he doesn't want to because it's hiding the even uglier electric box. What is it?

30. Another unknown. This is in a group of medium-sized tallish (5 feet) plants. Not really a tree, more of a bush.

31. another unknown.

32. What are these things called? Stick-like with the feathery things at the end.
