A sun shiney day at long last! I have been working away at my little sketches but I haven't had a nice day for shooting photos in ages. I was finally able to get outside and now I have a plump folder full of edited pictures ready to post. The cherry blossoms (neighbor's tree) are long gone now but I am happy to have their memory preserved in my scribble sketchbook.
The city has planted a new tree in our front yard; the city claims the little patch of dirt from the outside of the sidewalk to the curb, but I still consider it to be "our" tree. My husband says it's a cherry, but I won't be convinced until I see blossoms next spring. We used to have a beautiful maple in that spot but it was taken out by a drunk driver. The new tree is doing very well. Our nextdoor neighbor who has the cherry tree I sketched, is outside at this moment polishing his brand new jeep. His pickup truck was recently totaled in front of his house by a different drunk driver! Our street is actually fairly quiet and we live in a sleepy little town, so I hope our new little tree can grow in peace. I hope it is also peaceful in your little corner of the world!
